From: "Ulrich Müller" gentoo-pms@l.g.o [gentoo-pms] [PATCH] WORKDIR has same scope as FILESDIR and DISTDIR. Sat, 18 Mar 2017 14:35:29 22733.17812.529801.720971@a1i15.kph.uni-mainz.de
 1 Ebuilds must not access the WORKDIR directory in global scope, so the 2 FILESDIR footnote applies to it, too. Rearrange the table accordingly. 3 4 Also small change of wording ("in which" -> "where") to prevent an 5 awkward page break. 6 --- 7 ebuild-env-vars.tex | 24 ++++++++++++------------ 8 1 file changed, 12 insertions(+), 12 deletions(-) 9 10 diff --git a/ebuild-env-vars.tex b/ebuild-env-vars.tex 11 index 262bcf9..6b6e1c9 100644 12 --- a/ebuild-env-vars.tex 13 +++ b/ebuild-env-vars.tex 14 @@ -95,6 +95,18 @@ variable. 15 Ditto & 16 Yes & 17 The full path to the directory in which the files in the \t{A} variable are stored. \\ 18 +\t{WORKDIR} & 19 + Ditto & 20 + Yes & 21 + The full path to the ebuild's working directory, where all build data should be contained.% 22 + \label{env-var-WORKDIR} \\ 23 +\t{S} & 24 + \t{src\_*} & 25 + Yes & 26 + The full path to the temporary build directory, used by \t{src\_compile}, \t{src\_install} etc. 27 + Defaults to \t{\$\{WORKDIR\}/\$\{P\}}.
