Linux plugin builq query
« on: February 20, 2022, 04:20:53 am »
How are the following plugins built in Linux?  I can see how they are built on Windows via CBP files.
  • devpakupdater
  • headerguard
  • loghacker
  • ModPoller
  • tidycmt
In the src/plugins/Makefile.am is the following:
Code
EXTRA_DIST = headerguard \
        loghacker \
        modpoller \
        tidycmt

In the src/plugins/contrib/Makefile.am are the following relevant lines:
Code
DIST_SUBDIRS = ...\  
          devpak_plugin \

Good Question. On Linux it seems, by default they are not built at all.

Are they still relevant? Does somebody use them?

I always use configure to build cb on linux. Neither their names, nor EXTRA nor DIST are mentioned in configure --help.

devpak_plugin is the only one, where the directory (devpak_plugin) name does not correspond to the plugin name (devpakupdater). That naming is inconsistent. In addition to that, context matters. It already resides below the directory named plugins.
