To subscribers of the xforms list from Alex Chatziparaskewas <achatzip@hrz.Uni-Bielefeld.DE> :


My xforms/fdesign whish list:

Sometimes the changes done with fdesign are so small that
the header file emitted by fdesign will not change.
But fdesign rewrites it. In a great project with _many_ forms
used in _manymany_ files -- e.g. in my -- this makes the make-prog
think rather the hole project has to be recompiled because
'header'.h is out of date...

Therefor I do a touch -r 'older-ref-file' to surpress the

Maybe it is not a bad idea not to rewrite the
'header'.h file if it will not change !!

Thats exactly that what my Makefile does now...
but in my opinion it would be tricky to add it to
fdesign by default!
