A short guide to Makefiles


The make program on Unix is great for managing compiled projects. It allows you to specify which files are created from which others, and then run appropriate commands to update the created files. This document has a lot of information which is specific to the GNU project's implementation of make. On the acpub computer system, it is run by typing gmake to avoid confusion with the Solaris make program.
