    The Meson Build System

    the only compiler i know that works differently is MSVC and it would be easier to just provide a wrapper that transforms POSIX-compatible compile command lines into ones that MSVC understands.

    (this reminds me of the head-desk approach CMake takes to adding library dependencies: each library has a hardcoded configuration file, which can go as far as scanning your /usr/lib for libfoo.so rather than just assuming "-lfoo works, and if it doesn't, use $PKG_CONFIG --libs foo"...)

    the author of cproc actually filed an issue report in 2019 pointing out this very fallacy, which is still open: https://github.com/mesonbuild/meson/issues/5406
