Reproducible computational experiments
using SCons

Sergey Fomel[*]and Gilles Hennenfent[*]


SCons (from Software Construction) is a well-known open-source program designed primarily for building software. In this paper, we describe our method of extending SCons for managing data processing flows and reproducible computational experiments. We demonstrate our usage of SCons with a couple of simple examples.
