Start a Build From Command Line

I know this is a long shot, but ...

Is there a way to start a build from the command line?

We're maintaining several applications that are dependent on some common
service classes.  When those services change, we have to open each
application's project painter and manually execute a build.

We'd like to put all those dependencies into a batch file, sort of like
you'd do with a C/C++ make file.

Thanks.

Jack,
You need PowerGen from ECrane Computing.   www.ecrane.com.

This little utility is absolutely invaluable!

Paul, I used Powergen. Why people like powergen so much ?
We can create exe from PB also. What is the difference between Project
Painter and powergen ? I used powergen but I didn't find any major difference
in it.

Thanks for the tip.  Unfortunately, I could never get the ECrane
Computing web server to respond!  I'll try again on Monday in case the
server was down for maint. on Sunday.

Mahendra,

You seem to have forgotten the original query: "Start a Build From
Command Line".  This is only one of many advantages of PowerGen over the
Project Painter.

Regards,

Phil Wallingford

Command line Build/Deploy in Powerbuilder 8
Can you build/deploy a runtime library using the command prompt? I have only found the commands for workspace and target in the documentation. Thanks! Can't be done with PB.

PowerBuilder command line options
I'm trying to find out information about what options are available from the command line in PowerBuilder. I haven't been able to find it in the documentation. I know you can do "C:\PWRS\PB5I32\PB050.EXE /p library" to have it open the library painter but are there more options available? Specifically I'd like to go into the library painter, import a project, open the project and do a Design Restore Libraries from the menu, then exit. The goal here is to automate the extract and build process. PowerGen has a nice command line interface for building the exe, but...

starting X after booting in command line or not

Instead, I should boot to command line only [that is level 3 on Mandriva-- as opposed to full GUI boot being Level 5], log in as user; and only THEN start X with command "startx" to get X up and running. This wouild get X to run as *user* and *not as root* which I am told is safer, etc. I understand the idea; but is this way of booting (level 3 to then level 5) not ...
