Make is a utility that facilitates doing repetitive tasks like
compilation. A `makefile' is a text file that contains a
description of what
make should do and under what circumstances.
For example the compilation `Makefile' included with the MCSim
distribution only compile a C-file if it has changed since the last
compilation. This means that when you change your model and create a new
`model.c' file using mod, only the `model.c' file needs to be
compiled to recreate the simulation engine.
Before you run
make for the first time on a machine you must
change some settings in the makefile to specify where your C compiler is
on your file system, and some special settings for that compiler. Refer
to the documentation (or manual pages in Unix) for your compiler to do
this. In the makefile file there are several variables defined which you
may need to change. They are described in the makefile itself.
You run the
make program by entering
Makefile at the prompt from the directory where the program is that you
want to compile.
