SCons supports a list of files to be also deleted on "scons -c" (cleaning). Here is a code example how to check that a file is in the list.
Actually, it not the list, but an associative array. Keys are the targets, values are the lists.
# 'env' is the SCons environment # 'node' is a SCons node for the target # -- # Check that the target has a cleaning list assert SCons.Environment.CleanTargets.has_key(node) # Get the cleaning list clist = SCons.Environment.CleanTargets[node] # Create a list of nodes from the list of files rej_node = env.arg2nodes(os.path.join('tmp', 'file.tex.rej')) # Check that the cleaning list is as expected assert clist == rej_node
