Hi,
I want to add a nested if in my makefile. How can I do something like this?
This is the pseudo code below.

ifneq '$(MODE)' 'unix'
ifneq '$(MODE)' 'solaris'  && ifneq '$(MODE)' 'linux'

Do something there....

endif
endif

What is the best way to do this?

Thanks
Jamie

Depends on which "make" you're using.   All the "ifxxxx" commands are non-standard and they vary in syntax between makes.

ifneq '$(MODE)' 'solaris'  
ifneq '$(MODE)' 'linux'
... do this if not unix and not solaris and not linux
endif
endif
