This week’s TechMail is Use Makefiles for more than handling source code which takes a quick look at how you can use make for more than just handling source code. The example provided uses make to update remote websites (which is moderately related to source code I guess), but shows how you can manage individual scripts or commands in a way that you can do things like “make update” or “make remote” or whatever else you might want. The point of the tip was to show that make and Makefiles are useful beyond just “make && make install” when dealing with source code.
