::Payton greatly resists stating the obvious about the silliness of putting
multiple apps in the same path.::

Did I think that out loud?

::Yes you did::


In all seriousness, why not give the apps long, descriptive names and then
provide symbolic links with shortened versions of the names for ease of use
for humans?  In makefiles it's just as easy to put rc :=
geoResourceCompiler65 in there as it is rc := grc, then if you have to
change your symbolic link, your makefiles don't have to change.

Maybe I've just been programming in Java and .Net too long.  In either
platform you'd never bat an eye at something like
org.cc65.geosResourceCompiler.class or CC65.GeosResourceCompiler.exe.

To unsubscribe from the list send mail to with
the string "unsubscribe cc65" in the body(!) of the mail.
