Modern code depends on modern libraries, so you may find yourself spending a lot of time setting up the sort of things that in other systems are a one-line call to the package manager. We’re back to the sort of thing that makes people talk about how C is 40 years old, so you need to write everything from scratch. So, there are the caveats. Microsoft has walked away from the conversation, leaving others to implement a post-grunge C compiler and environment. Cyg2. Although Msys, MinGW, and a few other elements are provided as packages, this handful of packages pales in comparison to the hundreds of packages provided by the typical package manager.

If I know it’s not yet ready to copy out to the world, then I can call make html doc and do only those steps. In the simple makefile from earlier, we had only one target/dependency/script group. o $(P): $(OBJECTS) This follows a sequence of dependencies and scripts similar to what my blogging makefile did, but the scripts are implicit. o. o file. o given the setup here). o files into an executable. c The $(CC) variable represents your C compiler, and make will typically guess that for you if it isn’t set.

O -lbroad -lgeneral as the relevant part of the linking command. Comparing the correct compilation command to the recipe, we see that we need to set LDLIBS="-lbroad lgeneral". o, which is likely to fail. o files. So, that’s the game: find the right variables, and set them in the makefile. You still have to do the research as to what the correct flags are, but at least you can write them down in the makefile and never think about them again. If you use an IDE, or CMAKE, or any of the other alternatives to POSIXstandard make, you’re going to be playing the same find-the-variables game.
