/usr/ccs/bin/make [options ] [targets ]

Update one or more targets according to dependency instructions in a description file in the current directory. By default, this file is called makefile or Makefile . See Chapter 20, The make Utility , for more information on make . See also Managing Projects with make , listed in the Bibliography.

Note: the Solaris make has many extensions over the standard SVR4 make described here. See make (1) for more information.



Override makefile assignments with environment variables.

-f makefile

Print commands but don't execute (used for testing).


Print macro definitions and target descriptions.


Query; return 0 if file is up-to-date; nonzero otherwise.


Do not use "default" rules.


Do not display command lines (same as .SILENT ).


Touch the target files, causing them to be updated.
