See http://www.unix-systems.org/what_is_unix.html for more info.
A makefile is a file that is useful when building a bunch of files,Quote:>Also i heard about " MakeFile"....what is this....
You use the "make" command to build something according to a makefile,
and when you do, it figures out which things are out of date and which
are up-to-date, and it rebuilds only those pieces which need
For example, assume you have two C source files and you want to compile
them into objects and then link the objects together into an
executable. The makefile would describe how to build the executable
from the object files and how to build the object files from the source
files. The first time you run "make", it would build the object files
from the source files and then the exectuable from the object files.
Then, if you change only one source file and run "make" again, then
"make" looks at the modification times on the files and realizes that
only one object file needs to be rebuilt, since the other is not out of
date. So, it rebuilds the one object file, and then it relinks the two
object files (one just built and one built before, but both up-to-date)
into the executable.
makefiles can also be used for building other files besides just
executables, but that is the most common use.
For more information, type "man make". If you want to learn how to
write makefiles, there is a short introductory book called "Managing
Projects With Make", by Oram and Talbott, which might be helpful.
If you want to use make on larger projects, be aware that the syntax
of Makefiles is quite tricky (lines starting with TABs have special
meaning!) and it is extremely difficult to maintain platform-independent
Makefiles by hand. The tool most commonly used to do this is
GNU autoconf/automake, see
