Probably some of you have already tried this feature. Personally I knew it
was there, but it hadn't dawned on me yet how useful it is with so little
effort to setup.
To setup just:
1. mkdir /tmp/wafcache
2. echo "export WAFCACHE=/tmp/wafcache/" >> ~/.bashrc
Then when you start a new shell (so WAFCACHE) is defined, waf will save
cached compilation files, and use them whenever it can:
Entering directory `/home/gjc/projects/ns/ns-3-dev/build'

restored from cache debug/src/devices/wifi/adhoc-wifi-mac_1.o
restored from cache debug/src/devices/wifi/nqap-wifi-mac_1.o
restored from cache debug/src/devices/wifi/nqsta-wifi-mac_1.o
restored from cache debug/libns3.so
This is rather useful for people working with multiple ns-3 branches...
