Ok so I know how to make the build system for projects deterministic. Basically I walk through every dependency of every project that is added and I have a counter for it. When a project is depended on its count goes up. Then when all the projects and dependencies are tallied up I can sort them where the projects with the most usage are first and the ones with least are lower. This will pretty much always mean that cldc-compact is the first project since everything depends on it so much. Of course it will be a bit recursive because I should not have projects that count things multiple times such as having a duplicate dependency specified.
I have an actual
!= in the key comparison, I wonder where that came from.
Actually no that is the length.
And instead of an actual sort, I can just substract instead of increment to go from most used to least used order. This saves creating a reverse binary search class.
And as expected, cldc-compact is the lowest valued dependency.
So not much programming on my working days, but so far I managed to code almost every day. Every little bit counts, which is a good thing.
