            Value

A class for Python variables, typically passed on the command line or generated by a script, but not from a file or some other source.

  NodeInfo
The generic base class for signature information for a Node.
  BuildInfo
The generic base class for build information for a Node.

Instance Methods [hide private]
 
__init__(self, value, built_value=None)
x.__init__(...) initializes x; see help(type(x)) for signature
source code
 
str_for_display(self) source code
 
__str__(self)
str(x)
source code
 
make_ready(self)
Get a Node ready for evaluation.
source code
 
build(self, **kw)
Actually build the node.
source code
 
is_up_to_date(self)
Alternate check for whether the Node is current: If all of our children were up-to-date, then this Node was up-to-date, too.
source code
 
is_under(self, dir) source code
 
write(self, built_value)
Set the value of the node.
source code
 
read(self)
Return the value. If necessary, the value is built.
source code
 
get_text_contents(self)
By the assumption that the node.built_value is a deterministic product of the sources, the contents of a Value are the concatenation of all the contents of its sources. As the value need not be built when get_contents() is called, we cannot use the actual node.built_value.
source code
 
get_contents(self)
By the assumption that the node.built_value is a deterministic product of the sources, the contents of a Value are the concatenation of all the contents of its sources. As the value need not be built when get_contents() is called, we cannot use the actual node.built_value.
source code
 
changed_since_last_build(self, target, prev_ni) source code
 
get_csig(self, calc=None)
Because we're a Python value node and don't have a real timestamp, we get to ignore the calculator and just use the value contents.

Method Details [hide private]

__init__(self, value, built_value=None)
(Constructor)

source code 
x.__init__(...) initializes x; see help(type(x)) for signature
Overrides: object.__init__
(inherited documentation)

__str__(self)
(Informal representation operator)

source code 
str(x)
Overrides: object.__str__
(inherited documentation)

make_ready(self)

source code 

Get a Node ready for evaluation.

This is called before the Taskmaster decides if the Node is up-to-date or not. Overriding this method allows for a Node subclass to be disambiguated if necessary, or for an implicit source builder to be attached.

Overrides: Node.make_ready
(inherited documentation)

build(self, **kw)

source code 

Actually build the node.

This is called by the Taskmaster after it's decided that the Node is out-of-date and must be rebuilt, and after the prepare() method has gotten everything, uh, prepared.

This method is called from multiple threads in a parallel build, so only do thread safe stuff here. Do thread unsafe stuff in built().

Overrides: Node.build
(inherited documentation)

is_up_to_date(self)

source code 

Alternate check for whether the Node is current: If all of our children were up-to-date, then this Node was up-to-date, too.

The SCons.Node.Alias and SCons.Node.Python.Value subclasses rebind their current() method to this method.

Overrides: Node.is_up_to_date

get_contents(self)

source code 
By the assumption that the node.built_value is a deterministic product of the sources, the contents of a Value are the concatenation of all the contents of its sources. As the value need not be built when get_contents() is called, we cannot use the actual node.built_value.
Overrides: Node.get_contents

changed_since_last_build(self, target, prev_ni)

source code 
Overrides: changed_since_last_build

get_csig(self, calc=None)

source code 
Because we're a Python value node and don't have a real timestamp, we get to ignore the calculator and just use the value contents.
Overrides: Node.get_csig
