Bits / 2019 / Gold Medal Release Blam (project and documentation)


blam is a BlitzMax rebuild of another of my tools, BlitzBuild. BlitzBuild is a command-line build tool for BlitzPlus and Blitz2D, whereas blam is aimed at BlitzMax developers. It’s not as powerful as Make, but I use it for every BlitzMax project.

For 2019 I’d like to release the updated version and source, along with documentation on how to use it. Documentation is an area I struggle with, so I’m trying to focus on making it easier to create and update.
