Toolkit2: Should have --pretend and --clean option
Every invocation of the toolkit currently overwrites certain files. However, as a user, I miss two options:
Clean the generated files, especially the glue files. For a novice user, it is not obvious what to clean when wanting certain files to be regenerated. A
--cleanfile should exeute
rm Abstract* KernelCalls*
Explain what the toolkit would do. Some tools such as rename(1) or rsync(1) have an option called
--no-actwhich explain what the tool would do. We should offer such an option to make it more transparent what especially a second run of the toolkit does.
