Calling program:

    pake [options] [tasks]

DESCRIPTION

pake program run task specified in the command line and executes it with dependencies defined in Pakefile.

pake comes with predefined tasks for file and directory manipulations and for running tests. For details refer to other Modules

Pakefile script is a normal perl scipt, by default executed with:

        use strict;
        use warnings;

    -f FILE, changes the script file name to the specified, default Pakefile
    -h, print help contents
    -d DIR, changes the working directory
    -D,  prints all tasks with dependencies
    -r, Dry run, executes Pakefile to check if script is properly formed
    -V, prints pake version

EXAMPLE PAKEFILE

        #default task
        default "test2";
        
        desc "task simply prints test";
        task {
                print "test\n";
        } "test";
        
        desc "task test1 depends on test"
        task {
                print "test1\n";
        } "test1" => ["test"];

        directory{
        
        } "src/com/test";
        
        #file dependencies are executed only if the files created by tasks changed
        file {} "biblioteka.c" => [];
        
        file {
                `gcc -c biblioteka.c`
        } "biblioteka.o" => ["src/com/test","biblioteka.c"];
        
        file {
            `gcc -o program program.c biblioteka.o`
        } "program" => ["biblioteka.o"];
        
        #End script with something true
