SCons is an Open Source software construction tool.

Think of SCons as an improved, cross-platform substitute for the classic Make utility with integrated functionality similar to autoconf/automake and compiler caches such as ccache.

In short, SCons is an easier, more reliable and faster way to build software.

How to use

You can check the versions installed in Gadi with a module query:

We normally recommend using the latest version available and always recommend to specify the version number with the module command:

$ module load scons/3.1.1
