<programming, tool> The Unix tool to automate the recompilation, linking
etc. of programs, taking account of the interdependencies of modules and their
modification times. Make reads instructions from a "makefile" which specifies a
set of targets to be built, the files they depend on and the commands to execute
in order to produce them.
Most C systems come with a make. There is also one produce by GNU.
