Output Serialization for Concurrent Jobs
[prev] [home] [next]

  • Nokia nmake supports concurrent job execution through the -jn option
  • Nokia nmake supports distributed execution via COSHELL=coshell (where coshell is the network shell server)

 Problem:     Output lines appear in the order written, so output of commands with multi-line output is intermixed.

The serialization feature introduces a new make log file (default makelog) in which:

  • Output from each shell action block is contiguous
  • Output from each recursive make is (recursively) contiguous
  • Output from nmake itself is appropriately positioned
  • Real-time output continues to appear on stdout
