folks, is it possible for a target T1 to depend on a target xxx.dll.a and yet be NOT affected by time-stamp on the target xxx.dll.a ? we are in a situation where updating actions of the target xxx.dll.a may or may NOT really update the target xxx.dll.a if it ended up so that actions associated with xxx.dll.a did NOT actually change the contents of xxx.dll.a, is there a way to NOT rebuild target T1 that depends upon xxx.dll.a ? the NOUPDATE builtin rule provides some of this functionality. but the problem with NOUPDATE is that once the target xxx.dll.a gets built, actions associated with it never get executed. what we wanted was for the actions to get executed and let actions decide if the target needs update or not. i would appreciate any help that you could provide on this. thanks, -badari
