Sample text

Without it, your debugger won’t be able to give you variable or function names. They don’t slow down the program, and we don’t care if the program is a kilobyte larger, so there’s little reason to not use this. It works for gcc, clang, and icc (Intel C Compiler). • -std=gnu11 is clang- and gcc-specific, and specifies that the compiler should allow code conforming to the C11 and POSIX standards (plus some GNU exten‐ sions). As of this writing, clang will default to using the C99 standard, and gcc the C89 standard.

Make also offers several built-in variables. Here are the (POSIX-standard) ones that you will need to read the following rules: $@ The full target filename. o files. $* The target file with the suffix cut off. c. $< The name of the file that caused this target to get triggered and made. c. The Rules Now, let us focus on the procedures the makefile will execute, and then get to how the variables influence that. Setting the variables aside, segments of the makefile have the form: target: dependencies script If the target gets called, via the command make target, then the dependencies are checked.

Using Makefiles | 21 Using Libraries from Source So far, the story has been about compiling your own code using make. Compiling code provided by others is often a different story. Let’s try a sample package. The GNU Scientific Library includes a host of numeric computation routines. The GSL is packaged via Autotools, a set of tools that will prepare a library for use on any machine, by testing for every known quirk and implementing the appropriate workaround. “Packaging Your Code with Autotools” on page 77 will go into detail about how you can package your own programs and libraries with Autotools.
