makemake.pl > makefile makemake.pl make.conf > makefile
input file is ‘mm.conf’ or/and ‘make.make’ or given file as 1st arg output is printed to the stdout
usage: makemake.pl > makefile usage: makemake.pl mm.dos.conf > makefile ...mm.conf/make.make format is:
---begin--- # comments begin with # or ; ; this is also comment # defaults for all targets CC = gcc LD = gcc AR = ar rv RANLIB = ranlib SRC = *.c *.cpp *.cc *.cxx # default commands MKDIR = mkdir -p RMDIR = rm -rf RMFILE = rm -f # if labels above doesn’t exist in the input file the values shown # are considered defaults # optional modules, subdirectories MODULES = module1 module2 module3 # any other labels here are preserved but not used # this could be usefull to use make(1) vars, see next example DEBUG = -g -pg [target-name-1] # this labels are required only if they should be different from # the defaults above CC = gcc LD = gcc CFLAGS = $(DEBUG) CCFLAGS = -I../vslib -I/usr/include/ncurses -O2 LDFLAGS = -L../vslib -lvslib -lncurses SRC = *.cpp # set source files # if ‘TARGET’ is skipped then the output file name is taken from the # target name (i.e. ‘target-name-1’ in this example) TARGET = vfu [target-name-2] ... ---end-----label ‘CFLAGS’ is optional and is appended to ‘CCFLAGS’ value
also each label’s value can be appended to previous (or to defaults) with ‘+=’ operator:
---cut--- SRC = vstring.cpp SRC += vstrlib.cpp SRC += regexp3.cpp ---cut---every target can inherit another one:
---cut--- [vstring.a] CC = g++ LD = g++ CCFLAGS = -I. -O2 TARGET = libvstring.a SRC = vstring.cpp vstrlib.cpp regexp3.cpp [debug-vstring.a: vstring.a] CCFLAGS += -g TARGET = libvstring_dbg.a ---cut---i.e. target ‘debug-vstring.a’ inherits ‘vstring.a’ but appends ‘-g’ to the compile options and changes output file name to ‘libvstring_dbg.a’
if you set target name to something that ends with ‘.a’ -- makemake.pl will produce library file target (i.e. will invoke AR instead of LD).
the minimum mm.conf is:
---cut--- [hi] ---cut---which will produce executable named ‘hi’ out from all sources in the current directory...
dec1998: firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com * first version * though there are several utilities like this I still haven’t found what I’m looking for... :) the closest approach is ‘tmake’ ( ‘qmake’ recently, 2002 ) made by Troll Tech for their ‘Qt’ toolkit, but is far too complex... also I wanted it in Perl :) oct1999: firstname.lastname@example.org added multi-target feature aug2000: email@example.com general cleanup, target clean uses ‘rm -rf’ instead of ‘rmdir’ added targets ‘rebuild’ and ‘link’ (does ‘relink’ actually) globbing replaced with the use of ‘ls’ dec2000: firstname.lastname@example.org added modules (subdir targets) support: $MODULES = "module1 module2 ..."; now target name is required and not set to ‘a.out’ by default mar2001: email@example.com added $MKDIR,$RMDIR,$RMFILE vars to support non-unix or non-standard commands for directory and file create/delete $REF[n] thing and target ‘re’ are back :) see examples below jun2002: firstname.lastname@example.org ranlib support (for versions of ar which don’t have ‘s’) oct2002: email@example.com $DEPFLAGS added for optional args for dependency checks. gcc -MM $DEPFLAGS file... nov2002: firstname.lastname@example.org fixed modules build order (modules first) dec2002: email@example.com input file (mm.conf) format has changed. it is no more perl source but is simpler. near complete rewrite done.
