MAKE4MPX is a UNIX-like make facility for the Encore MPX-32 operating system. It works in conjunction with Encore's non-based C compiler (Model 1012, Revision 1.2.0 or later) to allow maintenance of MPX-32 object libraries and user load modules. MAKE4MPX is a collection of utilities to support dependency processing for Assembler source programs, FORTRAN source programs, and C source programs and header files. You no longer have to "rebuild the world" after making source code modifications! Through the use of a makefile and software generated program dependencies, MAKE4MPX will search through the dependencies and rebuild only those modules that were dependent on the modified program(s); thus, ensuring that all libraries and load modules are up to date.


The makefile is a user defined directive file which specifies the set of source files, object files, header files, libraries, and load modules that are to be maintained, By typing "make depend", MAKE4MPX will search for a file named "makefile" in the current directory, read the user specified list of files that are to be maintained, and then append a set of dependency rules to the make file. Typing "make all" will then build all required modules. Typing "make install" will copy or move the specified load modules to their destination directory. Typing "make clean" will remove all object files. The user has complete control over all of these functions and can also specify any number of other operations to be performed. A prototype makefile is provided. Execution options for the C compiler, FORTRAN compiler, and Assembler, as well as Cataloger directives, can be specified.
