I don't think that has ever been true; it just happens to work for many programs. For instance, ccache 2.4 does not work correctly with this program: #!/bin/sh if [ $2 = -E ]; then touch oh-oh exit 1 fi if [ -f oh-oh ]; then echo Jello, Mike! >&2 rm -f oh-oh else echo Hello, Mike! >&2 fi Save the script to theprogram and run it like this: chmod +x theprogram touch empty.c ./theprogram -c empty.c ccache ./theprogram -c empty.c OK, silly example, but still: ccache has always assumed that the compiler behaves in certain ways. > But, since I'm not volunteering to fix it I can live with it. :) Right. :-) -- Joel _______________________________________________ ccache mailing list email@example.com https://lists.samba.org/mailman/listinfo/ccache
