13.7 Amake-Collect

Although the distributed version of amake-collect can be used as it is, the script is intended to be customized for a particular build process.

The script reads dependencies from stdin (a pipe), canonicalizes and filters the paths, and writes them to the target's .dep and .sib files. Checksum and last-modification-time values for dependencies are also written to the target's .dep file, as makefile-variable definitions. If the resulting files are empty they are removed, as unneeded.

The pipe-arbitrating semaphore is removed upon normal termination or receipt of a signal.
