Which script runs first when clearmake is invoked?
Posted on 2007-10-08
Our OS is Windows XP. We write 'C' Language code for PowerPC platforms. Our make utility is Clearmake with GNU Compatibility. When clearmake <target> is invoked, I thought filename Makefile or makefile runs first but filename makefile.options is running first. The contents of this file are as follows:
# Use clearmake GNU compatibility
CCASE_MAKE_COMPAT = gnu
Then, following two filenames are run:
Then, Makefile is run.
Please explain how build works up to processing of Makefile. How does clearmake know to process gnubuiltinvars.mk and gnubuiltin.mk? Were these two files installed during installation?
