What is a build?


In the field of computer software, the term
software build

refers either to the
process of converting source code files
into standalone software artifact(s) that
can be run on a computer, or the result of
doing so. One of the most important steps
of a software build is the compilation
process where source code files are
converted into executable code.
(Wikipedia.org)
