What is special about def_default_make_program in projutil.e?
« on: November 10, 2011, 11:47:47 pm »
I edited the value
_str def_default_make_program
in projutil.e

to be 'nmake' instead of 'make'.

However, the command issued still uses "make". If I change the name of def_default_make_program to def_default_make_program_1 (both where it is declared and where it is used in build_make_command()) then I get a command using "nmake".

Why/how does the value of def_default_make_program get get changed by SlickEdit? Is there a way I can change the value without editing the macro files?

I'm using SlickEdit 13.0.2.0.

Better use 'set-var def_default_make_program' on SE cmdline or 'Macro>Set Macro Variable'.
Those 'def_' variables are stored in SE config file(s). There is no need to patch the sources.
