This manual provides step-by-step instructions for using this utility in UNIX and DOS environments. The MAKE utility was created to help programmers manage files that will be compiled and linked together to form a single executable program. However, due to a paucity of information on MAKE, most programmers implement it by trial and error. This combined tutorial and reference was designed to fill this gap. Focusing on three versions of make - from Microsoft, from Borland, and for UNIX systems - and their guidelines and applications, the handbook explains how MAKE works, suggests reasons for using it, demonstrates its versatility and flexibility through examples of tested MAKE files, and provides a smooth, logical progression for learning the utility from its basic concepts to its most sophisticated implementations.
