(I think we're still tlaking about ";")
I'm involved in a project where a ";" instead of a "&&" between two
dependent build steps is evil, naughty, and generally bad. Seems the
";" hides an error code from propagating to the make parent process to
catch a failure. Much easier to write though.
It gets better... we don't seem to like pipes for the same reason. :(
In this case, the project deals with clearmake build-avoidance, and
once a derived object gets into the pool, whether bad or good, it's a
pain to purge. One viewpoint...
(I guess this means I don't need to fix the qte build if Qtopia Core
will build for us :)
