Why you might need it
Microsoft doesn't provide any way to reliably
build Visual Basic projects. Nmake.exe is made for Visual C++, not vb. It's
not a very good make program anyway. In order to use GNU make (gmake) or
perl's Make.pm you need a more posix like makefile.
What does it do for me?
This package will generate GNU style
makefiles based on your Visual Basic Project files. It can resolve file
path and system registry paths. If you work in a team environment, use
SourceSafe, then you might benefit from this package.
Would I find this useful?
You need it if you want to use a decent
makefile processor like GNU
's make. Mozilla
maintainers won't use nmake.exe either. They know better.
