In one of my projects, I have a bat file that is set to run as a pre-built command. The bat file causes some of my source files in my project to be modified, and that causes it to recompile them, and all the files attached to them, causing about half of my project to needlessly be compiled everytime. (It is a bat that runs the command-line stuff to compile my toLua packages.) Is there a way (with macros or something) that I could make it so it doesn't run that pre-built command unless certain files are modified? (I know about custom build rules already, but it wasn't a suitable method to use.)
