... and aap apparently ;) > About Scons: I never heard of it before It's been around for quite a while. It's based on the winning design for software construction tools (ie. "make" replacement) in the Software Carpentry contest (the website of which has vanished from the web now so you'll have to rely on the info at scons.org).
