Appendix C Complex Makefile Example

Here is the makefile for the GNU tar program. This is a moderately complex makefile.

Because it is the first target, the default goal is ‘all’. An interesting feature of this makefile is that testpad.h is a source file automatically created by the testpad program, itself compiled from testpad.c.

If you type ‘make’ or ‘make all’, then make creates the tar executable, the rmt daemon that provides remote tape access, and the Info file.

If you type ‘make install’, then make not only creates tar, rmt, and, but also installs them.

If you type ‘make clean’, then make removes the ‘.o’ files, and the tar, rmt, testpad, testpad.h, and core files.

If you type ‘make distclean’, then make not only removes the same files as does ‘make clean’ but also the TAGS, Makefile, and config.status files. (Although it is not evident, this makefile (and config.status) is generated by the user with the configure program, which is provided in the tar distribution, but is not shown here.)

If you type ‘make realclean’, then make removes the same files as does ‘make distclean’ and also removes the Info files generated from tar.texinfo.

In addition, there are targets shar and dist that create distribution kits.
