Searching Directories for Dependencies
For large systems, it is often desirable to put sources in a separate
directory from the binaries. The "directory search" features of `make'
facilitate this by searching several directories automatically to find
a dependency. When you redistribute the files among directories, you
do not need to change the individual rules, just the search paths.
- General Search
- Specifying a search path that applies
to every dependency.
- Selective Search
- Specifying a search path
for a specified class of names.
- How to write shell commands that work together
with search paths.
- How search paths affect implicit rules.
- Directory search for link libraries.
