|Pre Make Kit|
The first name of this project was premake. But when trying to get an account on sourceforge this name was already taken. So the name was changed to pmk.
Well pmk was already used for a "ghost" project since 2000-10-04, so premk was chosen as it was avalaible. For some time, pmk was hosted as premk on sourceforge. Eventually, we were able to switch to pmk on sourceforge as well.
Well if you have no problem with autoconf then PMK is not for you :).
The founder of the project chosen this licence because it was the one that best fit his mind. Don't even think to bother us about using another licence, you'll be disappointed.
No, since the beginning pmk was designed for POSIX (Unix like) systems. Check the STATUS file for currently supported platforms. We try to support most available Unix and Unix-like operating systems.
We don't have any plan actually, PMK was POSIX oriented since the beginning. We also want to keep this project as simple as possible so a specific port of PMK is the best solution for each kind of platform. Now if someone want to port PMK to windows: just contact us !
Because we found that Cygwin was not handling executable files as
it should. We think it's absurd to have to take care about a trailing
'.exe' under a Unix-like environment.
First PMK is a set of BINARIES. Avoiding scripts that can hide
malicious code is one of our goals.
In real life most of the systems are already needing Autoconf installation. So PMK has made the choice to be an independant package.
We don't know and we don't want to as it's not our goal. Autoconf has also some goals that we don't share. It's just another tool with a different point of view.
Because nobody asked for more :)
