Revision 2751, 0.9 kB (checked in by jwoithe, 3 years ago)

Simplify and optimize ffado-diag.in.

Executing ffado-diag after preprocessing ensures that the shebang python
version is used without keeping SConscript in sync with ffado-diag.in.

Merging all *.py modules into a single script will help any contributor
figuring the big picture, and spares the sys.path trick.

The rewrite is more resilient to missing dependencies, and hopefully more
readable.

Patch contributed by Nicolas Boulenguez with minor adjustments by Jonathan
Woithe. It has been tested under python3 and python2.
