Lake used to be called Bou , but I discovered that the logical name
'lake' was not particularly overloaded. Like PrimeMover it's a build
rule interpreter, not makefile generator. It was designed from the
ground up to be cross-platform and so the actual compiler details are
abstracted as possible.
Lake -> Lua <=> Rake -> Ruby ??
It is a single Lua file, only dependent on LuaFileSystem. There is
probably a compact and elegant dependency-driven programming framework
hiding inside Lake, in the same way that the proverbial thin person
lives inside the fat couch potato.
