The result of a blogging accident

Perl is not a build automation tool.

First blog in a while. Now for some stupidity! Microsoft are so smart, emmitting random error codes from HTML Help if their wonderful compression doesn’t save space. Lolz.

Created d:\htmlhelp.chm, 25,310 bytes
Compression increased file by 5.539 bytes.
make: *** [all] Error 1


Update: It seems that the error code is also emmitted if you save space too. However I have depreciated the need for Cygwin, so I’m using a batch file instead of make.
