Projects / Prototype Makefiles

Prototype Makefiles

Prototype Makefiles allows for very fast project startups; often no editing of Makefiles is needed at all. It is a collection of shared Makefiles and Makefile templates. The shared Makefiles contain the rules for building a project, cleaning it and making dependencies etc. The Makefile templates contain the data that is specific for each project. This separation avoids duplication of code in Makefiles and is therefore extremely easy to maintain and extend.

    Release Notes: The per-project default Makedefs.h example for CPPEXT was wrong, causing new projects to most likely fail. Secondly, 'make test' was fixed to successfully work with the new libstdc++ as used in Redhat 7.

      •  07 Jul 2000 21:31

        Release Notes: make real-clean removed all executable files, assuming they were compiled (generated) by looking only at the executable permissions; however, this also caused this target to remove scripts. Version 1.6 uses file(1) to find out if an executable is a real ELF executable before removing it.
