Make regen with --dotfile and --root work. Also add a test for GetSelfInvocationCommandLine(). Also fix a bug in MakeAbsoluteFilePathRelativeIfPossible() found by the new test: It now works correctly if the two paths passed in have different slash types right after the drive letter. If handed "C:\foo" "C:/foo/f", the function used to return "..\foo\f", now it returns just "f". This also makes the exe_path in the gn regen command look nicer, and might fix a few other things.

Alternatively, you can build GN from source:
git clone https://gn.googlesource.com/gn cd gn python build/gen.py ninja -C out # To run tests: out/gn_unittests
On Windows, it is expected that
lib.exe can be found in
PATH, so you'll want to run from a Visual Studio command prompt, or similar.
On Linux and Mac, the default compiler is
clang++, a recent version is expected to be found in
PATH. This can be overridden by setting
If you find a bug, you can see if it is known or report it in the bug database.
GN uses Gerrit for code review. The short version of how to patch is:
Register at https://gn-review.googlesource.com. ... edit code ... ninja -C out && out/gn_unittests
Then, to upload a change for review:
git commit git cl upload --gerrit
When revising a change, use:
git commit --amend git cl upload --gerrit
which will add the new changes to the existing code review, rather than creating a new one.
