examples: remove auto-generation of examples list
The examples/ file scanned the filesystem to find all examples to build (for examples=all option) and install. However, using run_command and scanning the filesystem prevented ninja from properly detecting the addition or removal of any examples - one had to recreate the build directory from scratch to guarantee correct detection of all examples. This patch replaces this generated list with a static list of examples, thereby allowing proper tracking by ninja/meson, but at the cost of having to update this file when a new example is added or removed. This also fixes an issue with Windows builds, since "sh" is not available there. Fixes: 2daf565f91b5 ("examples: install as part of ninja install") Cc: Signed-off-by: Bruce Richardson <> Acked-by: Luca Boccassi <>
