There is an important problem in Lazarus compilations :

Assume some units only include source files in their interface parts having
record types ( i.e. , there is no any declaration statement within unit
source and no any entries in their implementation parts ) .

Other units include source files containing procedures and use type
declaration units .

If a modification is performed in one of the procedure sources , Lazarus is
detecting it and compiling that unit .


If a new record element is added to one of the records , it is NOT
detecting that change and it is using the old compiled .ppu  and .o for
this type definition source file included unit with
a subsequent error message that the newly added element is NOT defined in
the respective record .

I am using a batch or shell script file to erase all of the .ppu and .o
files before starting the compilation .

Selecting "Build" from Lazarus "Run" menu is starting to build Lazarus
itself which is NOT possible because Lazarus is owned by the "root" .

Using -B option seems that it is NOT effective when there are existing .ppu
and .o files .

Then the only way is to "clean" existing .ppu or .o files in a selected way

I do not know why

make -s clean

is used , but implication is that deletion of existing  .ppu and .o files
are required before starting to compilation .

Thank you very much .
