17:34 mohawk this is just great
17:34 mohawk PDL's IO dir has a hierarchy of installable things
17:34 mohawk eg IO/HDF
17:34 mohawk which has sub-things, eg IO/HDF/SD
17:35 mohawk but if the HDF can't find itself, it writes a dummy makefile
17:35 mohawk however, IO/HDF/SD CAN find itself
17:36 mohawk so it writes a valid makefile
17:36 mohawk HOWEVER, the build process won't recurse into IO/HDF/SD (etc) because of IO/HDF's dummy makefile
17:36 mohawk nice goddamn work (eye-roll)
17:36 mohawk solution: flatten IO et al
17:50 jberger wow, that is a pretty snowflake
19:28 mohawk disclosure: that issue came up because i changed PDL::Core::Dev::write_dummy_* to use WriteEmptyMakefile
19:28 mohawk in my defence, that was because EUMM changed and broke the above
19:29 mohawk it also revealed an interesting bug in WEM
19:29 mohawk now fixed
19:29 mohawk so:  PDL has a TestTools dir
19:29 mohawk created and never touched after 1998
