Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. In software development, make is a utility that automatically builds executable programs and libraries from source code by reading files called makefiles which specify how to derive the target program. Make can decide where to start through topological sorting. Though integrated development environments and language-specific compiler features can also be used to manage the build process in modern systems, make remains widely used, especially in Unix. There are now a number of dependency-tracking build utilities, but make is one of the most widespread, primarily due to its inclusion in Unix, starting with the PWB/UNIX 1.0, which featured a variety of tools targeting software development tasks. It was originally created by Stuart Feldman in 1977 at Bell Labs. In 2003 Dr. Feldman received the ACM Software System Award for the authoring of this widespread tool.show more
