The hmk package

[Tags:gpl, library, program]

Clone of Plan9's mk command, said to have "improved on make by removing all the vowels from the name". Most features of mk are implemented, including basic meta-rules support and concurrent execution of jobs.

The library exports a generic dependency graph traversal that can be used independently of the rest.

The documentation is embedded in the literate Haskell source.

Note: the library portion is released to the public domain. Those source files that are not part of the library are released under GPLv3 or later.
