Short: Port of GNU make with SAS/C (no ixemul.library required)
Author: GNU, Amiga port by Aaron "Optimizer" Digulla
Uploader: Aaron "Optimizer" Digulla (
Type: dev/c
This is a pure Amiga port of GNU make. It needs no extra libraries or
anything. It has the following features (in addition to any features of
GNU make):
- Runs Amiga-Commands with SystemTags() (Execute)
- Can run multi-line statements
- Allows to use Device-Names in targets:
c:make : make.o
is ok. To distinguish between device-names and target : or ::, MAKE
looks for spaces. If there are any around :, it's taken as a target
delimiter, if there are none, it's taken as the name of a device. Note
that "make:make.o" tries to create "make.o" on the device "make:".
- Replaces @@ by a newline in any command line:
if exists make @@\
delete make.bak quiet @@\
rename make make.bak @@\
endif @@\
$(CC) Link Make.o To make
works. Note that the @@ must stand alone (i.e., "make@@\" is illegal).
Also be careful that there is a space after the "\" (i.e., at the
beginning of the next line).
- Can be made resident to save space and time
- Amiga specific wildcards can be used in $(wildcard ...)
- The line
dummy.h : src/*.c
tries to make dummy.h from "src/*.c" (i.e., no wildcard-expansion takes
place). You have to use "$(wildcard src/*.c)" instead.
To recompile, you need SAS/C 6.51.
As of GNU make 4.3, the build environment has been cleaned up and alternate
make files (including smakefiles) have been removed. If you have an existing
version of GNU make available you _should_ be able to run:
make -f
However this is untested.
If you have an Amiga system and would like to collaborate on getting
bootstrapping to work properly please contact
Copy make somewhere in your search path (e.g., sc:c or sc:bin).
If you plan to use recursive makes, install make resident:
Resident make Add
