Mpp::Signature::c_compilation_md5 -- a signature class that ignores changes to whitespace and comments


Unlike the usual signature class, this class computes an MD5 checksum of all source files, excluding whitespace and comments. Your source files may change, but if you use this signature class, makepp will be smart enough to realize that certain changes don't matter.

More specifically:

What this means is that you can freely add or change comments in your code, or reindent your code, and as long as you don't affect the line numbers, there will be no recompilation. Line number changes after the last token, e.g. comments with $Log at the end of file, will not cause a recompilation.
