Makefile with macros

  • Parameters that appear in the Makefile multiple times or that need to be modified, depending on the environment, can be expressed through macronames.
  • Makefile with macros example:
    #First, we define the MACRONAMES:
    SLIB = libScalar_Product.a
    CC = gcc
    CFLAGS = -O3
    LIBPATH = .  
    #Then we refer to them by $(MACRONAMES):
    $(APP): main.o $(SLIB) 
            $(CC) $(CFLAGS) -o $(APP) main.o -L$(LIBPATH) -lScalar_Product
    main.o: main.c Scalar_Product.h
            $(CC) $(CFLAGS) -c main.c
    Scalar_Product.o: Scalar_Product.c
            $(CC) $(CFLAGS) -c Scalar_Product.c
    $(SLIB): Scalar_Product.o
            ar -cru $(SLIB) Scalar_Product.o
            ranlib $(SLIB)
