Functions for Manipulating Global State


Configure the directory where build artifacts will be written.

Build artifacts include Rust build state, files generated by PyOxidizer, staging areas for built binaries, etc.

If a relative path is passed, it is interpreted as relative to the directory containing the configuration file.

The default value is $CWD/build.


This needs to be called before functionality that utilizes the build path, otherwise the default value will be used.
