2021-05-28Add support for regex-based target type/pattern specific variablesBoris Kolpackov1-11/+27
This is in addition to the already supported path-based target type/pattern specific variables. For example: hxx{*}: x = y # path-based hxx{~/.*/}: x = y # regex-based

2020-04-27Rework tool importation along with cli moduleBoris Kolpackov1-0/+4
Specifically, now config.<tool> (like config.cli) is handled by the import machinery (it is like a shorter alias for config.import.<tool>.<tool>.exe that we already had). And the cli module now uses that instead of custom logic. This also adds support for uniform tool metadata extraction that is handled by the import machinery. As a result, a tool that follows the "build2 way" can be imported with metadata by the buildfile and/or corresponding module without any tool-specific code or brittleness associated with parsing --version or similar outputs. See the cli tool/module for details. Finally, two new flavors of the import directive are now supported: import! triggers immediate importation skipping any rule-specific logic while import? is optional import (analogous to using?). Note that optional import is always immediate. There is also the import-specific metadata attribute which can be specified for these two import flavors in order to trigger metadata importation. For example: import? [metadata] cli = cli%exe{cli} if ($cli != [null]) info "cli version $($cli:cli.version)"

2019-10-18Add $quote() function for quoting valuesBoris Kolpackov1-2/+14
This can be useful if we want to pass a value on the command line, for example, in a testscript: $* config.cxx=$quote($recall($cxx.path) $cxx.mode, true)
