A hoary old Unix programming utility. Make allows programs that are built from many small files to be regenerated efficiently. In most programming languages, every file in a program must be compiled and "linked" into a single executable unit. By keeping track of modification dates and knowing about the dependencies between files, make only regenerates the files that need to be updated, thereby saving much time.
A utility that processes a makefile to build a project's target.
"Make" is a utility program that automates the various steps needed to create an executable program. It takes information from the various aspects of a build target (assembler options, linker options, etc.) and integrates them into a single process. Though designed for large projects, "Make" is used for small projects as well. Note that while the configuration information for "Make" is called the "Build Target" in Code Warrior, in many other systems the configuration file is a text file called a "makefile". The "makefile" contains essential information such as file names, paths, assembler and link options, etc. that are needed for "Make" to automate the build process.
Command. Use this command to build applications. It can or should be used with some of the below listed options. buildworld: Build the foundation files of the operating system. buildkernel: build the core files of the operating system. clean: Clean up extraneous files after building a application. install: Place and make available the application. installworld: Place the foundation files of the operating system. install kernel: Place the core files of the operating system. You can read the man pages here.
The UNIX tool that compiles the Stronghold server binary based on instructions in the Makefile.
Unix program for creating and configuring applications from program modules. Allows you to make changes to a program module and recompile only that module, not the entire program.
A utility used to generate an output file based on changes in a set of component files.
To compile code into a standard application (EXE), dynamic link library (DLL), or ActiveX control (OCX).
files that contain rules for building a program, then a make program is run using a makefile
In computer programming, make is a utility for automatically building large applications. Files specifying instructions for make are called Makefiles. make is most commonly used in C/C++ projects, but in principle it can be used with almost any compiled language.
