Gnu make unleashed

This list is for asking questions about ways to use make, or how it works, or how to apply it to resolve some build issue you may be having. It build single executable from all. Bissell Feb 2 '17 at Pushing the Envelope Chapter 6: In particular, if your executable is named the same as one of your C source files then you don't even need the link line, as long as the C source file is the first dependency:

Gnu Make Unleashed []

Putting an underscore at the start of a name is one way to indicate that the variable is just a placeholder, and its value should be ignored. GNU make is the most widely used build automation tool, but it can be challenging to master and its terse language can be tough to parse for even experienced programmers.

It would be nice if the docs themselves had a similar chapter. Like most programmers I'm more at home with imperative languages than functional; and looking at other people's Makefiles tends to do my head in.

Also, your rule for building. Unnleashed bar and the line "Because no makefile makee line number information gets printed, we know that a built-in rule was used here. Is recursive make not considered harmful, i. Or, if you like, you can send the problem report via email to bug-make gnu.

I wouldn't call this a show-stopper. At some companies, paid is easier to argue than free. Recursive make is reinvoking make on unlesahed subdirectory. This way, you won't unnecessarily trigger dependency generation on targets which do not build objects like clean.

GNU make is known unlexshed being tricky to use, but it doesn't have to be. I do it all the gun. In particular, since make variants differ widely in the functionality they offer, you should examine the chapter Incompatibilities and Missing Features to determine if this is a known incompatibility with another version of make. When reporting bugs, it is crucial that you provide all relevant information needed to understand the bug: CM Crossroads has gone downhill for a while now.

I have no connection with the project but I should really see if I can get into their wiki there and add a little doc laying out the subtleties of it; it does work out in the end. Take make for what it is and use a proper programming language to handle Makefile generation, installation, etc.

That is to say, with the top-down scheme used by Make you think about and write things down in this kind of order: Not sure who's idea that was; this book covers advanced concepts and the new name does not reflect that. It is distributed both in its original Texinfo format, and in Info format. If a piece of software can't handle spaces in paths, the software is broken.

CmdrKrool on July 2, It's amke highlighting here how Tup differs fundamentally from Make in that you specify the DAG from the bottom-up, rather than the top-down as in Make.

And, the documentation of that 'run ' function could be better in short, you shouldn't just supply a full string as you would type it at the command line; you should convert those space-seperated command-line arguments into comma-seperated Python arguments, and Fabricate will automatically quote any argument that contains a space.

On the other hand, there are tons of small "your first makefile" tutorials this article is better than the average. I was a technical reviewer for this book.

See the section Problems and Bugs for more details. Thanks for another interesting suggestion.

So, if you're like me you may prefer to hurry on to the 'ultimate' step which is to just use a general-purpose language with a helper library for running build commands. So off the bat, your makefile example is better than most makefiles out there. Sigh, yet another article giving advice about how to use make as a kind of general-purpose language.
