To execute a Makefile, you will need to have the
make command installed on your system. Once you have
make installed, you can execute the Makefile by running the following command:
This will execute the default target specified in the Makefile, which is typically the first target listed in the file. If you want to execute a specific target in the Makefile, you can specify the target as an argument to the make command, like this:
For example, if the Makefile has a target named build, you can execute that target by running make build.
It’s important to note that the make command only works with files named “Makefile” (or “makefile” in some cases). If your file has a different name, you will need to specify the name of the file as an argument to the make command, like this:
make -f <makefile-name>
For example, if your Makefile is named “my-makefile.txt”, you would run make -f my-makefile.txt to execute it.
I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any other questions.
