Set Substition Pattern

set patsub from-re replace-string

Add a substitution pattern rule replacing patsub with replace-string anywhere it is found in source file names. If a substitution rule was previously set for from-re, the old rule is replaced by the new one.

In the following example, suppose in a docker container /mnt/project is the mount-point for /home/rocky/project. You are running the code from the docker container, but debugging this from outside of that.


set patsub ^/mmt/project /home/rocky/project
