|Subject:||Dependencies on directories on NTFS volumes|
|Date:||Fri, 25 Mar 2005 23:06:54 +0100|
On NTFS volumes, the last modification time of directories is changed
whenever a change occurs to the directory or an entry within it. This
behaviour can cause make to go into a loop if an entry within the
directory is changed, and there exist other targets that depend on the
directory which then again causes changes to be made to the directory.
See http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=299648 for more information.
This patch changes so the creation time is always used instead of the
last modification time for directories on Windows.
Tested with VC++ 7.1 only.

* remake.c (name_mtime): On Windows, use the creation time
of directories instead of last modification time.
