I have makefile like (by name "makefile"),

my_program: processing.o gui.o
      c++ processing.o gui.o -o my_program

- If I give a command "make debug" in command line the above pgm should compile in debug mode. How to achieve this?

-thanks

No my friends, If I give like "make debug", the pgm inside i.e
"c++ processing.o gui.o  -o my_program" should compile in debug mode like,
"c++ processing.o gui.o -g -o my_program"

-thanks

In most of the case "make debug" is for debug the C codes, but you want to do it for Makefile.
