[Ns-bugs] [Bug 478] New: ./waf --regression should be able to, by default, look for traces in ../
code at nsnam.ece.gatech.edu

Summary: ./waf --regression should be able to, by default, look
for traces in ../
Component: build system
AssignedTo: ns-bugs at isi.edu
ReportedBy: tomh at tomh.org
Estimated Hours: 0.0
If build.py/download.py is used, a python constant to store where the reference
traces are located, and ./waf doesn't require a "--with-regression-traces"
argument at configure stage.
If, however, another repo is cloned or copied in parallel to the existing
ns-3-dev, one must specify the regression trace location in configure.
For my workflow, it would be convenient if ./waf --regression in ns-3-dev
checked first whether --with-regression-traces was set, and fallback to
checking ../ns-3-dev-ref-traces by default. This is because I often keep a
sync'ed ns-3-dev in my local filesystem and just copy it to work on specific
bugs or work projects (such as ns-3-dev-bug458).
I would even be fine with setting a local env var such as
DEFAULT_NS3_REF_TRACES that could be checked as a default if
--with-regression-traces were not specified. Such an env. var option would
enforce less policy.
Same could hold true for pybindgen and nsc.
Another option would be to use something like "build.py -n ..." but ./waf is
hard to configure in that manner.
