Understanding make

Found this nice article on make at IBM DeveloperWorks – you can read it here.

Also refer this link.

Rule:

target: dependencies
<tab>command

That’s the basic form, the first target is the default target.

Invoking “make -p” prints the internal macros for that make. This time though, I’m not going to try and make notes .. the IBM link is rather good for that.
