the place this file has been renamed to (or nil).
(check_renamed): Macro to check for a file having been renamed.
Dereferences the renaming and sets the given variable.
* file.c (rename_file): Completely rewritten. Renames in place if

special case of -j.

* make.texinfo, main.c, job.c: Changed copyright notices to include

* make.texinfo (Top): Fixed introductory paragraph, which said that
`make' itself (instead of the manual) has various chapters.

`patsubst', use node `Text Functions', not `Functions'.
Add an xref about `patsubst' after description of $(var:a%b=c%d).
(Functions: Syntax of Functions): Explain why mixing delimiters in
function/var refs is unwise. Clarify fn arg evaluation order.

since some have defaults.
(Implicit: Pattern Rules: Pattern Examples): Clarified use of $< and $@
in first example.

"silently". It's automatic, but not silent.
(Implicit: Search Algorithm): Fixed confusing ungrammatical sentence
for item 5.1.
(Archives: Archive Update): Added missing `next' pointer.
(Archives: Archive Symbols): Note that GNU `ar' deals with this

* job.c (search_path): New fn, to search for an executable file in a
search path (broken out of exec_command).
(exec_command): Take fourth arg, the shell program to use (if
necessary). Use search_path for the program, and the shell program.

deps. In version 4, I think removing this test completely will
implement the new feature that if a: b and b: c and c is newer than a,
b need not be remade.

Sun Nov 26 16:12:41 1989 Roland McGrath (mcgrath at paris.Berkeley.EDU)

* remake.c (update_file_1): "No cmds and no deps actually changed"
loses if ! FILE->is_target.

(child_handler): Don't set C->file->update_status to 0 when start_job

deps from the chain.
* main.c (main): Do it here, before calling update_goal_chain.

* remake.c (update_goal_chain): When updating fails, change STATUS even
if MAKEFILES is set. Also stop remaking when updating fails if not
under -k and MAKEFILES is not set.

* remake.c (remake_file, update_file_1, notice_finished_file),
commands.c (execute_file_commands), make.h, commands.h: The functions
remake_file, notice_finished_file, and execute_file_commands no longer
return values, and their callers no longer expect values returned.

cmds and no deps actually changed if FILE doesn't have any deps.

* file.c (remove_intermediate): Remove precious files that also have
the `dontcare' flag set.

* remake.c (update_file_1): Don't always remake if FILE has cmds but no
deps; only if FILE is double-colon. (I don't know why this should be
done for double-colon targets, but that's what Unix make does.)

* load.c [LDAV_BASED] (load_average): Write error messages if the
various system calls fail. Keep track of if we've failed before.
The first time we fail, write a message saying -l won't be enforced.

#include and declaration of `errno'.
[...] (dup2): Fixed so it won't always lose.

* default.c (default_suffix_rules: .texinfo.dvi): Copy, rather than
move, the aux and index files, so the TeX run can use them.

* compatMakefile: Remove redundant comment.

* load.c [generic Unix LDAV_BASED]: Include instead of
, since the `struct nlist' declaration in varies
more than the one in .
(load_average): Use the `n_un.n_name' field of the `struct nlist',
since the declaration uses the union.

* main.c (main): For the temporary files made for stdin makefiles, set
the `intermediate' and `dontcare' flags.
* file.c (remove_intermediates): Don't print any messages for files
whose `dontcare' flag is set. (The only files that will be

(install): Depend on $(mandir)/make.$(manext).
($(mandir)/make.$(manext)): Depend on and copy it to $@.
($(bindir)/make): Use `make' rather than $<; so Unix make can grok it.

Thu Aug 24 03:35:48 1989 Roland McGrath (roland at

* commands.c (execute_file_commands): If the commands are empty, set
FILE->update_status to zero before returning.

* remake.c (notice_finished_file): Set `last_mtime' fields to zero
instead of calling name_mtime; file_mtime will do that later if anybody

Thu Aug 17 10:01:11 1989 Roland McGrath (roland at

`prev' pointer.

* Version 3.54.9 (alpha).

modtime is now.

* remake.c (update_file_1): In the loops that call update_file on the
deps, compare modtimes before and after (unless deps are still being
made) and set the deps' `changed' members. Do not set the `changed'
members in the loop that prints the newer/older debugging messages.
* remake.c (update_file_1): If no deps changed and FILE has no
commands, decide it doesn't need remaking.

* remake.c (update_file_1): Print a debugging message if we take
commands from default_file.

* make.texinfo (Rules: Directory Search: Selective Search): Removed
note about warning for `vpath' with a constant pathname, since it isn't
warned about anymore.

static pattern rules. Save the percent pointer into implicit rule
targets, and pass them to create_pattern_rule.
* rule.c (convert_to_pattern): Pass new arg to create_pattern_rule.
(create_pattern_rule): Take new arg TARGET_PERCENTS, nil or an array of
pointers into the corresponding elements of TARGETS, where the %s are.

and README-doc to go into the two distribution tar files.
* GNUmakefile: Added a rule to edit the version number in
README.template and README-doc.template, producing README and

* remake.c (update_goal_chain): If -n or -q is in effect for a
makefile, and it got updated, don't change STATUS, so we can still
return -1 (meaning nothing was done). This avoids an infinite loop on
"make -n Makefile".

Sat Aug 12 23:14:24 1989 Roland McGrath (roland at

* remake.c (notice_finished_file): Treat -q the same as -n.

* remake.c (update_goal_chain): Fixed handling of return from
update_file. If -n or -q is in effect, ignore it.

* job.c (start_job): Don't test for -t. We should never get called in

for a few months).

Tue Aug 8 23:53:43 1989 Roland McGrath (roland at

to do the right thing with an empty path.

Fri Aug 4 15:58:19 1989 Roland McGrath (roland at

* remake.c (library_file_mtime): Look for libLIB.a, not /libLIB.a.
Do VPATH search on libLIB.a, not /usr/lib/libLIB.a

Thu Aug 3 20:42:00 1989 Roland McGrath (roland at

, define it as (WTERMSIG != 0).

Tue Aug 1 19:25:34 1989 Roland McGrath (roland at

* remake.c (remake_file): If FILE has no commands and is a target,
don't set its time to now. The time gets reset by notice_finished_file

Fri Jul 7 12:11:30 1989 Roland McGrath (roland at

* job.c: If WTERMSIG is defined by , define WAIT_T as int,
and don't define other macros; this covers HP-UX.

references (${${a}}), use the correct delimiters in the constructed
variable reference.

Mon Jul 3 18:29:26 1989 Roland McGrath (roland at

* compatMakefile: Clear out and redefine the .SUFFIXES list because
silly Sun 4 make defines .cps.h.

* compatMakefile: Fix comment about -DNO_MINUS_C_MINUS_O.

(read_makefile): Allocate storage for the makefile name in the
`struct file' in read_makefiles.

* make.texinfo (Running: Instead of Execution): Document the affect of
+ and $(MAKE)/${MAKE}.

directory before doing VPATH search.

* variable.c (print_variable_set): Don't write "# Variables", and write
fewer blank lines.
(print_variable_data_base): Precede the variables with "# Variables".

* make.c (main): Print the data base under -p after doing everything
else, just before exitting. This way it gets info determined in
updating the goal targets.

* variable.c (print_variable_data_base): Split into print_variable,
which prints one variable, and print_variable_set, which prints a set.
Replaced with a call to print_variable_set for the global set.

F versions of $^ and $?.

* commands.c (start_job): In the child fork, use getdtablesize and a
loop to close all file descriptors other than 0, 1, and 2. We need to
do this since not only the bad stdin pipe, but also some directories,
may be open.

* commands.c (start_job): Use fork instead of vfork, because a vfork
parent and child share file descriptors, and our child needs to diddle
with stdin.

* variable.c (initialize_file_variables): When created a new variable
set, zero out the hash table.

* variable.c (target_environment): Don't use variables whose names are
not made up of alphanumerics and underscores.

* remake.c (update_file_1): Set the `parent' member of each dependency
to FILE before updating it.

* file.h (struct file): Add `parent' member.

* variable.c (allocated_variable_expand): Now
allocated_variable_expand_for_file, calling variable_expand_for_file,

allocated_variable_expand_for_file, passing a nil second arg.

Fri Jun 9 12:11:45 1989 Roland McGrath (mcgrath at paris.Berkeley.EDU)

* commands.c (start_job): On the child side of the fork, always close
the bad stdin file descriptor.

* commands.c (struct child): New member `environment', to hold the
environment for the child.

* make.c (main): Don't call new_environ. `shell' functions will now be
run with the environment make was called with.

* commands.c (child_handler): Don't check C->command_ptr before calling
start_job since we now have to check C->file->cmds->command_lines and
it's easier to let start_job handle all that.

* commands.c (struct child): New member `command_line', to hold an
index into file->cmds->command_lines.
(execute_file_commands): Set the new child's `command_line' to 0 and
its `commands' and `commands_ptr' to nil.
(start_job): When CHILD->command_ptr runs out, increment
CHILD->command_line and run the corresponding line from
CHILD->file->cmds->command_lines. Run it even under -t, -q, or -n if
the CHILD->file->cmds->lines_recurse element for that line is set.

* commands.c (execute_file_commands): Chop CMDS up into lines, setting
its `command_lines' and `lines_recurse' members, if it wasn't already

* commands.h (struct commands): New members `command_lines' and
`lines_recurse'. The first is an array of chopped-up lines; the second
is an array of flags, each nonzero if the corresponding line is

* variable.c (variable_expand_for_file): If FILE is nil, just do a
vanilla variable_expand.
(expand_function: `shell'): Pass second arg (as nil) to

* commands.c (construct_command_argv): Use variable_expand_for_file on
`$(SHELL)' and `$(IFS)' instead of lookup_variable to check those
variables. This handles file-local and recursive values correctly.
To support this, take an additional argument FILE.

* variable.c (initialize_file_variables): New function to initialize
FILE's variable set list from PARENT's setlist. PARENT is the
immediate dependent that caused FILE to be remade, or nil if FILE is a
goal. (When user-level per-file variables are implemented, PARENT
should be passed as nil when defining per-file variables.)

* variable.c (variable_expand_for_file): New function to expand a line
using the variable set of a given file, and reporting error messages
for the file and line number of that file's commands.

* variable.h: Don't declare lookup_variable_for_file.

* variable.c (lookup_variable_*): Turned back into lookup_variable. It
now uses current_setlist.
(global_setlist): New static `struct variable_set_list', a setlist
containing global_variable_set.
(current_setlist): New static `struct variable_set_list *', a pointer
to the current variable set list.
(define_variable): Define in the current top-level set, not the global

variables for a file in its own variable set.
(execute_file_commands): Use set_file_variables.

takes additional arg FILE, and looks the variable up in all of FILE's
variable sets.

* file.h (struct file): New member `variables', a `struct
variable_set_list' containing the list of variable sets used in the
expansion of the file's commands.

* variable.c (variables): Replaced with static `struct variable_set'
(define_variable): Now define_variable_in_set, taking additional
argument SET, the `struct variable_set' to define it in.

(remake_file): Use touch_file. When touching a file, still do

* remake.c (remake_file): Don't check question_flag (-q), since we
can't know here if the commands are recursive.

CHILD->file->cmds. Instead, check for leading +s and $(MAKE) or
${MAKE} in the command line here.

Sun May 28 12:49:27 1989 Roland McGrath (mcgrath at tully.Berkeley.EDU)

* make.c (main): Fixed buggy fix in deciding to increase space for
command-line variable definitions. (First it never did it, then it

expansion in an allocated buffer, rather than the static one.

* make.c (main): Don't set glob_tilde (it no longer exists).

be makefile input. Lines that are not variable definitions are
preceded with `#'. Nonrecursive variable definitions are made with all
dollar signs doubled to reproduce the initial value. Recursive
variable definitions containing newlines are done with `define'

member of the bottom `prev' file (the one whose `prev' is nil).

* read.c (do_define): Append newlines after copying the lines into
the value buffer, so we end up with a trailing newline.

* make.c (print_version): If the global variable
`remote_description' is not nil or "", append "-%s" (its value) to
the version number.
* remote-*.c: Define remote_description appropriately.

Sun May 7 15:15:53 1989 Roland McGrath (mcgrath at paris.Berkeley.EDU)

* commands.c (error_status): Converted to new function child_error,
taking new arguments TARGET_NAME and IGNORED, and writing an error

directories will probably be out of date.

* commands.c (child_handler): Free the good stdin before running the
next command line.

* commands.c [USG] (init_siglist): Don't case SIGEMT if it's not

If not just remove the old one for put in the new one.

* remake.c (update_file_1, check_dep): Changed it back so that equal
modtimes to NOT make dependencies be considered newer. RCS checks
out files with equal modtimes as the RCS files, so this screws it.

* make.h, glob.c: If __GNUC__ is defined, use __builtin_alloca.

* Makefile: Use variables `ALLOCA' and `ALLOCASRC' so systems
without a good standard alloca can get it from the Emacs
distribution (or somewhere).

Mon Mar 20 10:21:22 1989 Roland McGrath (mcgrath at paris.Berkeley.EDU)

* Version 3.42.

* rule.c (default_variables): Set F77 to $(FC) and F77FLAGS to
$(FFLAGS) so explicit rules expecting these (which are in System V)
will work. However, there is no way to make setting these affect
the implicit rules, unless we trash FC and FFLAGS (which BSD uses).
[USG]: Set GET to `get' rather than `/usr/sccs/get'.

Sun Mar 19 20:00:27 1989 Roland McGrath (mcgrath at paris.Berkeley.EDU)

(construct_vpath_list): Set the `exists' member.
(selective_vpath_search): Don't search directories whose `exists'
elements are zero.

command-line variable definitions into argv[0], only into the MAKE

Sun Mar 5 20:44:08 1989 Roland McGrath (mcgrath at paris.Berkeley.EDU)

randomness when calls fail.

* Version 3.38.

* commands.c (fatal_error_signal): If handling a user kill signal
(TERM, INT, HUP), wait for the children without printing the
"Waiting for children" message, since they will die quickly.

* Version 3.37.

* remote-stub.c (remote_status): Take another arg, BLOCK. If this
is nonzero block waiting for remote children. If not, return 0 if
we would have to block.

* commands.c (child_handler) [not USG]: If called as a signal
handler, use wait3 and don't block.

(delete_child_targets): New function to delete a given child's
targets, unless the `deleted' flag in the `struct child' says they

* commands.c [USG]: Define `WRETCODE' correctly (X & 0xff00).

Tue Feb 14 16:05:00 1989 Roland McGrath (mcgrath at paris.Berkeley.EDU)

* commands.c (construct_command_argv): Don't make the 0th element of
the argument list be "sh" when executing /bin/sh, because start_job

remote, give their remote ID; if local, give their PID and make's.

* commands.c (execute_file_command): Don't put a new child in the
chain unless start_job succeeds. Block children before calling
start_job, and unblock them after putting the child in the chain and

visible (not `static').
commands.h: Declare block_children and unblock_children.

unblock after `shell_function_pid' is set properly and
`shell_functon_completed' is reset to 0.

* commands.c (child_handler): When the child of the `shell' function
completes, set `shell_function_completed' to 1 if it actually ran,
or -1 if it didn't (due to fork or exec failure).

block and unblock the child termination signal.
(wait_for_children): Use block_children and unblock_children.

Wed Feb 1 18:05:07 1989 Roland McGrath (mcgrath at pepper.Berkeley.EDU)

* Version 3.33.

* version.c: Removed copyright notice, since this is a one-line file.

* commands.c (error_status): Made it return BUF, rather than running
off the end (this apparently worked on Sun 3s for some reason).

* ar.c, commands.c, dep.h, load.c, make.c, make.h, read.c, remake.c,
rule.c, variable.c, Makefile: Changed copyrght notices to cover 1989.

put into it.

* read.c (record_files): Fixed the checking for duplicate deps so it
doesn't clobber the first one.

* rule.c: Revamped default suffix rules. They now use Sun's style
of using variables `COMPILE.c', `LINK.c', etc. for each suffix, and
use `TARGET_ARCH' and `TARGET_MACH' variable where appropriate.
Also support Modula-2 compilation (suffixes .sym, .def, and .mod).
Ratfor Yacc support is gone, since nobody has yacc -r.
All EFL support is gone, since nobody uses EFL.

* ar.c, arscan.c: Don't assume `long int' and `int' are the same.

* commands.c [USG]: Fixed wait status bit encoding.
[USG and not USGr3] (dup2): Define this for SysVr2.

* make.h, dep.h, make.c [iAPX286]: Make allowances for this

clears its commands.

* rule.c (default_suffixes): Added `.sh'.
(default_suffix_rules): Added single-suffix .sh rule, copies source
to target and makes target executable.
make.texinfo (Catalogue of Rules): Documented .sh rule and its use
in conjunction with SCCS.

member to `idx'.

Sat Dec 24 16:02:32 1988 Roland McGrath (mcgrath at paris.Berkeley.EDU)

* commands.c (wait_for_children [USG]): Handle SIGCLD with SIG_DFL,
rather than SIG_IGN. Ignoring SIGCLD reportedly makes wait return -1.

(ar_scan [USGr3]): Remove trailing slashes from member names.

Thu Dec 22 17:54:05 1988 Roland McGrath (mcgrath at homer.Berkeley.EDU)

* Version 3.29.

* make.c (struct command_switch, command_switches, et al): New
member `noarg_value', if not nil, ptr to value to use if no arg is
given to a switch that would otherwise require one. The -j option
can now be given w/o an arg, to mean infinite jobs.
* commands.c: If job_slots is zero, infinite jobs.

* read.c (read_all_makefiles, read_makefile): Make makefiles precious.

* make.c (decode_switches): For a positive_int or floating option,
if we moved to the next argument word, but found no argument for the
option, move back to the correct word.

* make.c (decode_switches): If we got any unknown options, die after
processing all arguments.

* GNUmakefile: Moved `include depend' to the end, so the default
goal will be set before then.

* load.c (wait_to_start_job [Unix, UMAX]): Merged into one version
under #ifdef LDAV_BASED. Only loop while we have jobs running.
Sleep for increasing amounts (increase one second per iteration)
before checking the load average (after the first check).
Get the load average from function load_average.
(wait_to_start_job [not LDAV_BASED]): Always return.
(load_average [UMAX]): Fetch load average for Encore UMAX.
(load_average [not NO_LDAV]): Fetch load average from /dev/kmem.

Fri Dec 16 16:51:07 1988 Roland McGrath (mcgrath at hecuba.Berkeley.EDU)

* commands.c (start_job): If start_remote_job_p () returns nonzero,
call start_remote_job to start the job rather than fork and exec.

* commands.c (execute_file_commands): Moved load average checking to

* commands.c (child_handler: USG): Record the pid wait returns.

* load.c (UMAX): Added some #include's needed for UMAX.

* read.c (multi_glob), variable.c (string_glob): Ignore a (char **)
-1 return from glob_filename.

* variable.c (variable_expand): Make sure we don't increment past
the end of the string we were passed.

* variable.c (variable_expand): Terminate the expansion.

* file.c (rename_file): If there is already a file under the new
name, set its contents equal to FILE's (ick).

* variable.c (define_automatic_variables): Pass all the args to
define_variable when defining MAKELEVEL!

* commands.c (execute_file_commands): If max_load_average > 0, and
we have children running, don't start up another child until the
load average goes below max_load_average.

* Makefile: Renamed to oldMakefile.
* GNUmakefile: Make Makefile from oldMakefile and depend.

* read.c (read_all_makefiles): When putting the default makefiles in
the read_makefiles chain so they will be remade, put them in the

in serial, and return as soon as one goal whose `changed' member is
nonzero is successfully remade.

* make.h: Don't declare construct_makeflags.

* make.c (main): Set up MAKEFLAGS and MFLAGS and make an environment
both before and after reading the makefiles, so the makefiles can
use them and possible change them, and later children will get the
right information.
(construct_makeflags): Replaced with define_makeflags (static void),
which defines the two variables.
* variable.c (define_automatic_variables): Don't define MAKEFLAGS

Mon Dec 12 14:40:31 1988 Roland McGrath (mcgrath at helen.Berkeley.EDU)

* Version 3.27.

* commands.c (child_handler): Reset the handler to ourselves when
called for USG, since it has no safe signals.

* commands.c: For USG, use an int rather than a `union wait' for
wait calls, and dissect it with bitmasks.
(child_handler): No wait3 system call in USG. Since we can't
protect from hanging, always return immediately if we have no
children we know about and we're not running a `shell' function.
(There is still the danger of hanging waiting for a child that died
without our being notified.)

* remake.c: Include instead of . What we need
is really in , and while BSD includes
, USG doesn't.

* make.c (main): Figure out the program name before doing anything
which might need it (in a call to error or fatal).

* dir.c, glob.c: Use `struct dirent' and for USGr3.

* arscan.c (ar_scan): Added missing & before buf (which is an int)
if SARMAG is not defined (SysV).

Fri Dec 9 18:44:13 1988 Roland McGrath (mcgrath at pepper.Berkeley.EDU)

* dir.c (find_directory, dir_file_exists_p): Keep track of how many
directories we have open and don't let it be more than
MAX_OPEN_DIRECTORIES (currently 10).

* variable.c (expand_function: `foreach'): Use expand_argument
rather than variable_expand so each repetition doesn't clobber the

Mon Dec 5 15:58:46 1988 Roland McGrath (mcgrath at hecuba.Berkeley.EDU)

* Version 3.25.

* Makefile: Define `install' target.

* GNUmakefile: Don't include GNUmakefile or depend in the
distribution file.

Wed Nov 30 15:53:42 1988 Roland McGrath (mcgrath at helen.Berkeley.EDU)

* commands.c (execute_file_commands): Don't clobber a null into
random storage if there were no $^ and/or $? words.

* remake.c (check_dep): Set *MUST_MAKE_PTR nonzero if a dependency
doesn't exist.

* ar.c (ar_member_date, ar_touch): Make sure the modtime of the
archive file itself is known before we fetch or change the modtime
of one of its members.

* read.c (read_makefile): Expand variable and function references
before parsing rules so variable can contain special characters
(colons and semicolons).

Sat Nov 26 11:36:31 1988 Roland McGrath (mcgrath at homer.Berkeley.EDU)

* variable.c (expand_function: `filter', `filter-out'): Fixed so
that filter-out works right.

* variable.c (expand_function: `filter', `filter-out'): Made these
functions use each word of their first argument as a pattern.

Fri Nov 25 10:51:47 1988 Roland McGrath (mcgrath at paris.Berkeley.EDU)

* Version 3.24.

* read.c (record_files): If a target is listed more than once in a
single rule (that defines commands), give a warning message rather
than the counter-intuitive message saying commands were already
defined (in the same place).

* make.c (fatal, error): Made them both take 6 args since there is
at least one error message that need that many. Too bad vfprintf is
not universal!

* Version 3.23.

* read.c (read_makefile): Moved the construction of the `struct
commands' into record_files. Call record_files before recursing for an
included makefile so the higher-up will determine the default goal.
(record_files): Take arguments COMMANDS, COMMANDS_IDX and
COMMANDS_STARTED and construct a `struct commands.

Thu Nov 24 14:36:33 1988 Roland McGrath (mcgrath at paris.Berkeley.EDU)

* Version 3.22.

* make.c (main): Made it a fatal error if we can't move back to the
directory we started in before re-execing.

* make.c (main): Get the current directory before doing anything
else, so we know it even if we don't need it for the value of
`MAKE', since we might want it when re-execing.

* Version 3.21.

* read.c (record_files): Eliminate duplicate deps in a chain.

* variable.c (expand_function: `sort'): Pass the right number to
qsort, not one less.

* remake.c (remake_file): Always call notice_finished_file if
FILE->command_state == cs_finished.

* commands.c (execute_file_commands): Call notice_finished_file to
set FILE's status correctly when start_job fails (because it's out
of commands or running under -n).

Fri Nov 18 15:31:12 1988 Roland McGrath (mcgrath at saffron.Berkeley.EDU)

* Version 3.20.

* remake.c (update_file_1): Set the `update_status' of FILE to
nonzero and set FILE's `updated' bit if we have decided to give up
on remaking FILE because of errors in the dependencies.

`dependent') properly.

* make.texinfo (Conditionals: Conditional Syntax): Function index
entries for `ifndef' and `ifneq'.

decimal number of the makelevel, since it may be malformed or blank.

* remake.c (remake_file): Call notice_finished_file after touching.

Sat Nov 12 19:29:34 1988 Roland McGrath (mcgrath at tully.Berkeley.EDU)

* Version 3.19.

* GNUmakefile (dist): Pass the `-f' flag to compress.

* vpath.c (build_vpath_lists): Check for VPATHS being nil after
constructing the general VPATH list from the `VPATH' variable.

Fri Nov 11 08:02:26 1988 Roland McGrath (mcgrath at tully.Berkeley.EDU)

* Version 3.18.

* read.c (read_makefile): Made it eat leading spaces and formfeeds
(but not tabs), like it's documented to.

default goal, as is done by System V Make.

Tue Nov 1 19:03:08 1988 Roland McGrath (mcgrath at tully.Berkeley.EDU)

* variable.c (new_environ): Don't increment VCNT when a variable is

Fri Oct 28 16:54:15 1988 Roland McGrath (mcgrath at basil.Berkeley.EDU)

* Version 3.17.

* rule.c (convert_to_pattern): Don't use the same storage for a name
in two rules since new_pattern_rule may free this storage when a
rule is discarded.

* rule.c (new_pattern_rule): Undid useless change I made Oct 25.

Thu Oct 27 19:17:53 1988 Roland McGrath (mcgrath at tully.Berkeley.EDU)

* Version 3.16.

* GNUmakefile, Makefile: Fixed a typo in a comment.
* Makefile: Removed malloc.o from object file list.

* variable.c: Removed old debugging #define's for xmalloc and
xrealloc so non-ANSI cpp's won't barf.

* make.c (main): Made local array for temp file name static so
compilers that don't do auto aggregate initialization won't barf.

* read.c: Removed static declaration of copy_dep_chain since it is
no longer static.

Tue Oct 25 16:59:30 1988 Roland McGrath (mcgrath at pepper.Berkeley.EDU)

* rule.c (new_pattern_rule): If we threw out the new rule because it
matched an old one and OVERRIDE was zero, don't put the freed
pointer in the chain!

Wed Oct 19 15:07:43 1988 Roland McGrath (mcgrath at pepper.Berkeley.EDU)

* Version 3.15.

* variable.c (expand_function: `sort'): Don't do the sorting and
writing out if there were no words in the first place.

* remake.c (remake_file): Only fail with a "no way to make" message
for a dependency (non-target) file. If we don't know how to remake
a target file, pretend it was successfully remade and is very new.

* remake.c (remake_file): Don't increment `files_remade' for a
non-target file we don't know how to remake.

* read.c (record_files): Don't die with "both : and :: entries" for
a file whose `is_target' flag is not set.

second argument correctly.

* ar.c (ar_touch): Return 1 rather than -1 for on errors.

Sat Oct 15 15:12:16 1988 Roland McGrath (mcgrath at homer.Berkeley.EDU)

* Version 3.14.

* GNUmakefile: Removed explicit rule for make.dvi since the built-in
implicit rule now works.

* rule.c (default_suffix_rules): Fixed .texinfo.dvi rule yet again
so that it really works, now that parens are counted.

* remake.c (update_file_1): Set FILE's `updated' flag after calling
remake_file if it failed or finished immediately.

* remake.c (update_file): Use the `updated' flag rather than the
command state to decide if a file was fully considered, and
therefore might give an "up to date" message.

* variable.c (expand_function): Made all functions that take more
than one argument count parens of the appropriate flavor in their
args and ignore commands nested in parens.

Fri Oct 14 18:35:00 1988 Roland McGrath (mcgrath at tully.Berkeley.EDU)

* read.c (read_all_makefiles): Pass second arg to read_makefile for
default makefiles.

Thu Oct 13 16:40:08 1988 Roland McGrath (mcgrath at tully.Berkeley.EDU)

* Version 3.13.

* GNUmakefile: Added an explicit rule for make.dvi since the
built-in .texinfo.dvi implicit rule is screwed up.

* rule.c (default_suffix_rules): Added a comment that the
.texinfo.dvi rule does not work because of an ahem, feature of Make
that at some point will be fixed--er, enhanced to alleviate this

* rule.c (default_suffix_rules): Fixed Texinfo -> DVI rule (again).

* make.texinfo (Commands: Execution): Documented new competing for
standard input among children.

* commands.c (struct child): Added `good_stdin' flag to tell if this
child has the stdin that doesn't point into nirvana.
(good_stdin_used): New variable to tell if any child has the good
standard input.
(child_handler): Reset `good_stdin_used' if a dead child's
`good_stdin' flag is set.
(start_job): Give the new child the good standard input if
`good_stdin_used' is no set, and set the child's `good_stdin' flag

* rule.c (default_suffix_rules): Changed Texinfo -> DVI rule to work
better (I hope).

* read.c (read_all_makefiles): Stop reading default makefiles after
one is found.

* read.c (read_makefile): Reset `reading_filename' and
`reading_lineno_ptr' after recursing for an included makefile.

* GNUmakefile: New GNU Make-specific makefile that does everything
Makefile does plus distribution stuff, and doesn't contain any hacks
to try to work with Unix make.

* Makefile: Removed distribution stuff.

* make.c (main): Use mktemp to construct the names of temporary
files used for standard input makefiles.

* make.c (main): Don't turn standard input into a broken pipe.

* commands.c (start_job): Keep two extra file descriptors around: a
good standard input, and a bad one that reads from a broken pipe.
On the child side of the fork, if there are other children, give
this one the broken pipe so they won't compete; if this is the only
one, give it the good standard input.

* make.h: Declare notice_finished_file.

* commands.c (execute_file_commands): Use noticed_finished_file
after waiting for the child when there is only one job slot.

* remake.c (notice_finished_file): New function to re-check mtime's
and such things to be done when commands finish.
(update_file_1): Use notice_finished_file.

* commands.c (child_handler, execute_file_commands): Use new
variable `job_slots_used' to record the number of jobs currently
running, rather than diddling with `job_slots'.
(execute_file_commands): Increment `job_slots_used' before calling
start_job and decrement it on failure to avoid race condition.
If there is only one job slot, wait for the child to finish and
return its status so commands are run in linear order, as if there
were no parallelism.

Wed Oct 12 15:59:03 1988 Roland McGrath (mcgrath at tully.Berkeley.EDU)

* remake.c (remake_file): Don't print a "No way to make" message for
targets whose `dontcare' flags are set.

* read.c (read_all_makefiles): Set the `dontcare' flag of the
`struct file' each default makefile added to the chain.

* file.h (struct file): Add `dontcare' member.

* read.c (read_all_makefiles): When no default makefiles are found,
put the names of all those tried in the `read_makefiles' chain so
they will be updated if possible, giving their `struct dep's'
`changed' members the value of 0 so we won't care if they cannot be
found or remade.

* make.texinfo (Makefiles: Remaking Makefiles): Documented that
default makefiles will be remade if not found.

* read.c (read_all_makefiles): If no default makefiles can be found,
go through the list of default names, trying to make one, stopping
if one is made.

* remake.c (remake_file): Set STATUS to 0 after successfully touching.

* dir.c (file_impossible, file_impossible_p): Don't clobber FILENAME

* rule.c (count_implicit_rule_limits), vpath.c
(construct_vpath_list): Test the existence of a given directory by
`dir_file_exists_p (DIR, ".")' and assume that if this returns zero,
it means the directory really does not exist.

* dir.c (struct dirdata): Replaced with `struct directory' for
directories, each containing a chain of `struct dirfiles', one for
each file (real or impossible).
(dir_load): Removed.

for double-colon files.

* make.c (main): Put a ".PHONY: /tmp/foo" line in front of temp
files made for stdin makefiles so they won't be remade when we
re-exec. Kludge-o-matic!!

* remake.c (update_goal_chain): Judge files as being finished based
on their `updated' flag, not their state.

* read.c (read_makefile): Don't check for FILENAME being "-".
(read_all_makefiles): Set each element of MAKEFILES to the name put
in READ_MAKEFILES by read_makefile, since read_makefile may free the

read standard input into a temp file and pass the temp file's name
to read_all_makefiles, after making sure it will not be remade.

* commands.c (execute_file_commands): Return 0 after start_job
returns 1 (failure) under the -n flag.

* remake.c (remake_file): Set the state to `cs_finished' when not
calling execute_file_commands.

(update_goal_chain): New function to update a `struct dep' chain of
goals, waiting until they are all finished before returning.

* make.h: Don't declare update_file. Declare update_goal_chain.

* make.c (main): Call snap_deps, etc. that were in read_all_makefiles.

* read.c (find_makefile): Removed this function.
(read_all_makefiles): Don't update makefiles, don't diddle with
pattern rules, don't call snap_deps, etc. Return a `struct dep'
chain of all makefiles read.
(read_makefile): Now takes two args: FILENAME and TYPE, which is 0
for a normal makefile, 1 for MAKEFILES variable or 2 for an included
makefile. Add a `struct dep' containing the name of the makefile
(as it was found in the search path for type 2s), and TYPE in the
`changed' member to the global `read_makefiles' chain.

* make.h, rule.c (displace_pattern_rules,
add_displaced_pattern_rules): Removed these functions.

makefile before calling find_makefile on it.

* file.c (snap_deps): If the `struct file' for a `struct dep'
already exists, free the `struct dep's `name' member before setting
it to nil (since this info is in the `struct file').

* read.c (copy_dep_chain): Made it copy each name rather than
leaving multiple `struct dep's with the same pointers.

Thu Sep 29 19:08:13 1988 Roland McGrath (mcgrath at catnip.Berkeley.EDU)

* make.c (decode_switches): Fixed second decode_env_switches call to
use correct length of "MFLAGS" (6, not 5).

* read.c (read_makefile): Don't stop reading when readline returns
zero lines read. Only stop when the stream reaches EOF. This makes
it recognize the last line of a makefile without a newline.

* remake.c (remake_file): If we don't know how to make FILE, set its
command state to `cs_finished'.

* remake.c (update_file): Don't write the "up to date" message if
update_file_1 returned a nonzero status.

Wed Sep 28 16:30:07 1988 Roland McGrath (mcgrath at catnip.Berkeley.EDU)

(start_job): Set `environ' to the child's `environ' member before
exec'ing the command.

* variable.h, variable.c (new_environ): Made it return the new
environment, not putting it in `environ'.

* remake.c (update_file): Don't give a "is up to date" message
unless no files were remade and the state went from `cs_not_started'
to `cs_finished', so repeat calls to finish jobs won't get the message.

Mon Sep 26 16:26:08 1988 Roland McGrath (mcgrath at helen.Berkeley.EDU)

switch letter.

* commands.c (child_handler): Check for a child being the `shell'
function's command returning and set the global variable for
expand_function to check.

loop around waiting for something to happen.

* make.c (print_version): Made the copyright year static, not dynamic.

* make.h, make.c: Remove construct_argv function.

* make.c (main): Say "no goal target" instead of "no target".

construct_command_argv and do its own child control and piping.

* make.c (main): Turn standard input into a broken pipe after
reading in all makefiles (the last time it will be needed).

* commands.c (struct child): Remove `pipe_fd' member. We don't use
pipes any more.

* rule.c (freerule): Don't free the `struct commands' of the
discarded rule. It may be used in more than one place.

possibly partly-made file. The child_handler function will do this.
(fatal_error_signal): Ditto + call kill_children.

* make.h: Declare job_slots.

* make.c (main): Collect goals in a dep chain and run through this
chain waiting for a child, eliminating finished goals, updating all
remaining goals, and quitting if they fail and not -k.

* commands.c (child_handler): If called with SIG < 0, - SIG is the
max number of children to bury.

* commands.c (child_handler): If called with SIG as zero,
block waiting for running children.
(kill_children): Call child_handler with zero rather than SIGCHLD.

* remake.c (update_file_1): Use the `command_state' member of FILE
and its dependencies to determine what commands are running, what to
do, etc. If commands or dep commands are running when we are
called, return success (0). If commands finished since the last
time we were called, return their status.

* commands.h: Declare kill_children.

* commands.c: Define `struct child' to keep track of child
processes, with the chain in `children'.
(child_handler): New function to catch child-termination signals

appropriate structure, take the now-obsolete `struct child' out of
the chain, and free its storage.
(execute_file_commands): Put all of the stuff invloving running the
commands into new function run_file_commands. Execute_file_commands
now does process management for the commands, while
run_file_commands (which is run in a subprocess) runs the commands.

sending them signal SIG. If there are any children still living
after they are all sent SIG, they are all sent SIGKILL.

* read.c (read_makefile): Get the modtime of the makefile via a stat
call so that a later file_mtime call won't do VPATH search for it.

* read.c (read_makefile): Don't turn off -t and -q if the makefile
was a command-line target.

* make.c (main): Enter command-line targets as files and set their
`cmd_target' members.

* file.h (struct file): Added `cmd_target' member.

* read.c (read_makefile): Temporarily turn off -t and -q while
updating makefiles.

* make.c (main): Don't use arg 0 from other_args (which is now

update the makefile as a target before reading it in. When reading
included makefiles, pass this as zero. Now returns nonzero if the
makefile was updated, zero if not.
(read_all_makefiles): Pass a nonzero UPDATEIT arg to read_makefile
for all default and -f makefiles and all makefiles from the
`MAKEFILES' variable. If any of the makefiles has changed, re-exec
self to re-read them.

under -p.

* commands.c (execute_file_commands): Allocate one byte for each of
$^ and $< rather than zero if they are to be empty.

`maxsuffix', and must be called before count_implicit_rule_limits.

* rule.c (pattern_search): If an existent (non-intermediate)
dependendency was found via a terminal rule, set its
`tried_implicit' flag, so it will never have implicit rule search done.

(construct_include_path): Ditto.

* make.c (collapse_continuations): Made it work right (I hope).

* make.texinfo: Minor editorial changes.

* read.c (read_makefile): Minor speed improvement by freeing and
then mallocing something rather than reallocing it to avoid the
unnecessary bcopy.

Thu Aug 11 00:10:43 1988 Roland McGrath (mcgrath at tully.Berkeley.EDU)

* make.texinfo: Fixed some unquoted @'s.

* make.texinfo: Documented multiple-target pattern rules.
Miscellaneous minor editorial changes and corrections.

* make.texinfo (Implicit: Catalogue of Rules): Removed the list of
variables. That's what the next section is for.
(Implicit: Implicit Variables): Made it agree with reality.

Wed Aug 10 00:55:39 1988 Roland McGrath (mcgrath at tully.Berkeley.EDU)

* variable.c (print_variable_data_base): Fixed bug which made -p
dump core. (This was a really idiotic bug.)

* rule.c (pattern_search): Fixed a bug which made it make the
`also_make' member of the file in question nil if the first of
the successful rule's targets was the matching one.
Made it use only as much storage as necessary in the `also_make'
(create_pattern): Made it use only as much storage as necessary in
the `lens' and `suffixes' members of the created rule.

* remake.c (library_file_mtime): Made it `static'.

* file.c: Added a declaration for `errno', which is declared in some
's, but not all.

* file.h (struct file): Added `also_make' member for multiple-target
implicit rules.
* rule.c (pattern_search): Made it put the names of files updated by
the given file's commands in its `also_make' member.
* remake.c (update_file_1): Made it mark the files in a file's
`also_make' member as updated when the file is updated.

* variable.c (try_variable_definition): Fixed a bug which made it
define a variable with the name of the whole definition when there
was no space before the = or :=.

* make.texinfo (Features): Made the changes which were made in RCS
revision 2.7 but somehow lost since then. Added -W.

Tue Aug 9 10:04:50 1988 Roland McGrath (mcgrath at tully.Berkeley.EDU)

* variable.h: Added `o_default' to `enum variable_origin'.
* variable.c (print_variable_data_base): Made it print the origins of
the variables.
* rule.c (install_default_pattern_rules): Made it define the default
variables with origin `o_default'.

* make.texinfo: Documented -W.

* make.c (decode_switches, main): Added the -W flag to give files a
time-stamp of now, for a `what if' effect when used with -n.

* commands.c (print_commands): Made it say `(built-in)' for commands
that are built into the default ruleset.

* read.c (record_file): Made .SUFFIXES get its deps frontwards (again).
* rule.c (set_default_suffixes, convert_to_pattern): Made it read
.SUFFIXES's deps frontwards, so the converted rules will not be in
reverse order.

* rule.c (new_pattern_rule): Fixed a bug wherein it would keep
searching after it had removed a matching rule and ended up diddling
with freed storage.

* rule.c (freerule): Made it take the given rule off the chain.
(new_pattern_rule, count_implicit_rule_limits): Use freerule to
remove rules from the chain.

* vpath.c (construct_vpath_list): Made it return after cleaning out
all previous searchpaths when given a nil DIRPATH arg, so it won't
go into the construction code and dump core dereferencing a nil

* variable.c (patsubst_expand): Fixed a bug which made it not match
correctly and sometimes dump core.

Mon Aug 8 16:35:48 1988 Roland McGrath (mcgrath at tully.Berkeley.EDU)

* rule.c (default_suffix_rules): Made the .texinfo.dvi rule remove
the files used in the comparison to determine whether or not a
second TeX run is necessary.

* make.texinfo: Fixed some overfull TeX hboxes.

* make.texinfo (Implicit: Catalogue of Rules): Fixed a Texinfo error.

* rule.c (create_pattern_rule): Fixed bug wherein index was not
being passed its second arg.

* read.c (getline): Merged back into readline.

* rule.c (default_suffixes, default_suffix_rules,
default_variables): Added rule.
* make.texinfo (Implicit: Catalogue of Rules): Documented
.texinfo.dvi and rules.

* make.texinfo (Top): Changed `last updated' date to be correct (for
the last time it was updated, not today). Changed `for version
3.00' since it's not going to be called that.

Sat Aug 6 19:51:10 1988 Roland McGrath (mcgrath at tully.Berkeley.EDU)

* commands.c (print_commands): Added this function to print the
contents of a `struct commands' for -p.
* rule.c (print_rule_data_base): Use above.
* file.c (print_file_data_base): Ditto.

* rule.c (count_implicit_rule_limits, new_pattern_rule,
install_pattern_rule, print_rule_data_base): Made it understand the
changed `struct rule' and act accordingly.
(freerule): Added this function to free all the storage used by a rule.

* rule.c (pattern_search): Made it grok multiple targets of pattern
rules. The matching is done properly, but at present, only the
matching pattern's target is used to give deps and commands.

Fri Aug 5 18:00:29 1988 Roland McGrath (mcgrath at tully.Berkeley.EDU)

* rule.c (struct rule): Changed name, namelen, and patsuffix members
to targets, lens, and suffixes, which are arrays, for multiple targets.
(create_pattern_rule): Now takes first arg TARGETS, a nil-terminated
array of targets, rather than a single target and patsuffix pointer.

* read.c (record_files): If it finds an implicit pattern rule, it
collects all the targets into an array and passes the whole thing to
create_pattern_rule. If there are non-pattern targets, it is a
fatal error.

Tue Aug 2 15:06:38 1988 Roland McGrath (mcgrath at tully.Berkeley.EDU)

* make.c (readline): Split backslash-newline checking from reading
and buffer-expanding.
(getline): Created to do the reading and buffer-expanding formerly
done in readline.

* rule.c (pattern_search): Made it reject nonterminal match-anything
rules when a specific rule has matched, rather than rejecting
terminal match-anything rules in this case.

* rule.c (convert_to_pattern): Fixed a bug caused when the change to
make it only recognize two-suffix rules whose target suffixes
precede their dependency suffixes which made it work in the opposite
direction (even worse than it started out).

* rule.c (pattern_search): Made it reject nonterminal match-anything
rules as intermediate targets when searching for both real and
intermediate dependencies, rather than only when searching for
intermediate ones.

Sun Jul 31 00:33:56 1988 Roland McGrath (mcgrath at tully.Berkeley.EDU)

* rule.c (convert_to_pattern): Made it only recognize two-suffix
rules whose target suffix comes before the dependency suffix in the

* variable.c (define_automatic_variables): Made all automatic
variables be defined with origin `o_automatic'.

* variable.h: Added `o_automatic' to `enum variable_origin'

* file.c (remove_intermediates): Made it not print an error message
if the error was that the file does not exist.

* rule.c: Removed `recursive' member from `struct rule'.

* remake.c (library_file_mtime): Made it not use the directory hash
functions, as reading in and hashing /usr/lib and /lib is slow and
most likely unnecessary.

* remake.c (remake_file): Changed message from ``No specification
for making'' to ``No way to make'' so it will be short enough that
most filenames will fit on a line.
Made it look at the `recursive' member of the `struct commands',
rather than of the `struct file' (which no longer has one).

* commands.c (execute_file_commands): Made it look at the
`recursive' member of the `struct commands', rather than of the
`struct file' (which no longer has one).

* file.h: Removed `recursive' member from `struct file'.

* commands.h: Added `recursive' member to `struct commands'.

* dep.h: Removed unused `quotedparen' member from `struct nameseq'
and `struct dep'.

* read.c (dequote): Removed this function.
(multi_glob): Removed reference to `quotedparen' member of
a `struct nameseq' and calls to dequote.

* read.c (record_files): Made it set the stem for $* for all static
pattern rules, not just those with commands given at that time.
Removed check for recursive commands.
Made it check for pairs of .SUFFIXES dependencies to reject as
default goals as well as single ones (that don't start with dots).
(read_makefile): Added checks for recursive commands to set
the `recursive' flag in the `struct commands'.

Sat Jul 30 15:47:23 1988 Roland McGrath (mcgrath at tully.Berkeley.EDU)

* make.c (find_next_token): Made the LENGTHPTR arg optionally nil.

* make.c: Removed `files_made' variable which is defined static in
remake.c and used only there.
(main): Cleaned up somewhat.
(decode_switches): Cleaned up a bit. Made an unknown option be a
non-fatal error.
(decode_env_switches): Made LEN arg unsigned. Cleaned up.
(print_version): Made it say ``see the source'' rather than ``see
the source file'', since there is more than one.

* file.h: Made `num_intermediates' declared unsigned.

* file.c: Made `num_intermediates' variable unsigned.
(remove_intermediates): Removed unused FORMAT arg.
(enter_file): Made it handle double-colon files properly, adding the
new entry as the old entry's prev pointer.

* dir.c: Re-indented the `struct dir' definition to be right.
(dir_load): Cleaned up slighty.
(file_exists_p): Removed comment saying we could use `access', since
that is a bad idea (except for setuid programs). Cleaned up slightly.

* commands.c: Changed some comments slightly.
(execute_file_commands): Cleaned up a bit. Changed some comments,
added others. Moved freeing of storage for $^ and $? to the same
place as for the other automatic variables.
(execute_command_line): Made `#' trigger a shell.
Added some comments. Cleaned up a bit. Put all the special chars
that trigger shells into an array easily changeable at the top.

* ar.c: Added comments explaining each function.
(ar_scan_1): Merged into ar_member_date.
(ar_member_date): Changed call to ar_scan_1 to the body of that
(ar_member_date_1): Simplified to a ?: expression rather than an
if-else statement.
(ar_member_touch): Changed error handling around a bit.
None of these errors are fatal now.

* variable.c (subst_expand): Added a new arg BY_WORD, to do substs
only on full words.
(patsubst_expand): Fixed bug which made calls whose patterns
contained no `%' to not work correctly, by using above.
(variable_expand): Pass extra arg to `subst_expand'.

* variable.c (expand_function): Fixed bug which made `foreach' calls
with one-word lists run off into never-never land.

Fri Jul 29 20:12:36 1988 Roland McGrath (mcgrath at tully.Berkeley.EDU)

* variable.c (expand_function): Made a very minor speed improvement
by avoiding an unnecessary strlen call.

Wed Jul 27 16:01:47 1988 Roland McGrath (mcgrath at tully.Berkeley.EDU)

* rule.c (default_suffixes): Rearranged the list somewhat; added
`.el' and `.elc' to speed things up (especially when building
Emacs), for the same reason `.h' is there.

* read.c (record_files): Changed `lineno' from `long' to
`unsigned int'.

Sun Jul 24 02:15:30 1988 Roland McGrath (mcgrath at tully.Berkeley.EDU)

* variable.c (expand_function): Eliminated use of `wstok'
because it is non-reentrant and unreliable.
Fixed a minor bug which would cause something not to be freed.
* make.c (wstok): Removed `wstok' because it is no longer used.

* variable.c (expand_function): Made `foreach' function put
spaces between output texts like it's supposed to.

Sat Jul 23 17:32:55 1988 Roland McGrath (mcgrath at tully.Berkeley.EDU)

* rule.c (default_suffixes, default_suffix_rules): Added rule
to make %.dvi from %.texinfo.

* dir.c (print_dir_data_base): Made it say a bit more.

Fri Jul 22 23:13:16 1988 Roland McGrath (mcgrath at tully.Berkeley.EDU)

* make.c (print_data_base): Split this function up into one
for each thing.
* variable.c (print_variable_data_base): One of the above.
* rule.c (print_rule_data_base): Ditto.
* file.c (print_file_data_base): Ditto.
* dir.c (print_dir_data_base): Ditto.

* rule.c (install_pattern_rule): Fixed a bug which caused the
terminal and recursive flags to always be zero for rules
entered by this function.

* make.texinfo (Rules: Double-colon): Added a paragraph
explaining the purpose of double-colon rules.

* make.texinfo (Implicit: Catalogue of Rules): Updated to
reflect new C++, TeX, Web, and Texinfo rules. Other slight
editorial changes.

* commands.c (execute_file_commands): Fixed a bug wherein
random memory could get written for files with no deps.

Wed Jul 20 19:30:31 1988 Roland McGrath (mcgrath at tully.Berkeley.EDU)

* read.c (readline): Fix bug wherein it would not recognize a
backslash-newline if the buffer filled up and was enlarged
right before reading the newline.

Tue Jul 19 19:55:02 1988 Roland McGrath (mcgrath at chilli.Berkeley.EDU)

* read.c: Added default suffix rules for .cc (using $(C++),
which defaults to `g++', and $(C++FLAGS)), .tex, .dvi, .web
and .cweb (using $(TEX), $(WEAVE), $(TANGLE), $(CWEAVE) and

Sat Jul 16 21:24:28 1988 Roland McGrath (mcgrath at tully.Berkeley.EDU)

* Made error formats use %u rather than %ld for line numbers,
which are now unsigned int's rather than long's.

* read.c (conditional_line): Fixed some bugs caused by use of
unsigned int rather than int in one place.

* read.c (conditional_line): Put the info about active
conditionals in a struct.
(read_makefile): Make a new struct of info about conditionals
for included makefiles and restore the old one after the
included makefile has been read.

* read.c (read_makefile): Don't try to read a makefile with
name "" after giving an error message because an `include'
directive gave no filename.

* read.c (read_makefile): Give an error message for
non-whitespace text after the filename in an `include' directive.

* make.c (error): Take five args, like `fatal'. It managed to
lose with only two. Is there a better way to do this without vfprintf?

* read.c (read_makefile): Commands consisting of only
whitespace are not the same as no commands. I thought I'd
fixed this bug months ago; it seems to have come back.

* make.c (collapse_continuations): All whitespace around a
backslash-newline combination is turned into a single space.

* Added COPYING file and copyright notices to all files.

* make.texinfo (Running: Goals): Fix a typo.

* read.c (do_define): Take an arg for the origin of the
variable being defined.
(read_makefile): Grok `override define'.

* make.texinfo (Variables: Override Directive, Defining):
Document the `override define' combination directive.

* ar.c (ar_member_date): Make a 0 return from `ar_scan' return
(time_t) -1 (nonexistent file), rather than (time_t) 0, which,
when put in the `struct file', makes `file_mtime' try to get
the mtime over and over again.

* variable.c (pattern_matches): Fix a bug that made patterns
not beginning with `%' never match.

Fri Jul 15 21:01:44 1988 Roland McGrath (mcgrath at tully.Berkeley.EDU)

* Took Make out of RCS.

* Split the monolithic `make.c' into several smaller files.

Local Variables:
mode: indented-text
left-margin: 8
version-control: never

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read:
