The Odin System
The Odin System is a simpler, more powerful, and more reliable replacement for Make. It computes complete dependency information automatically, making the build scripts shorter and easier to manage. Odin gains efficiency by parallel builds on remote machines, by eliminating most of the file system status queries required by Make, and by sharing from a cache of previously computed derived files.
