Project Name

Add support for more compilers to distcc

Project Description

An earlier project added multi-compiler support to distcc, and then MSVC support. The framework is now in place to support even more compilers. Add support for another compiler; either Java or C#.

Necessary Skills: C, Python, Makefile

Project Leader(s)

Peter Callaghan (pcal)

Project Contributor(s)

Once the 0.1 release is complete, testers will be needed to try compiling on a variety of LANs.

Project Details

While the earlier work done on this project suggests that only a hand-full of functions need to be coded, both Java and C# compile in a manner significantly different than C. Regardless, the following functions are the minimum which need to be created:

  • arg.c
    • dcc_<compilerName>_set_action_opt
    • dcc_<compilerName>_set_output
    • dcc_<compilerName>_scan_args
  • strip.c
    • dcc_<compilerName>_strip_local_args
    • dcc_<compilerName>_strip_dasho
  • filename.c
    • dcc_<compilerName>_is_source
    • dcc_<compilerName>_is_preprocessed
    • dcc_<compilerName>_is_object
    • dcc_<compilerName>_preproc_exten
  • hosts.c
    • dcc_<compilerName>_get_hostlist
