Make and Makefiles

January 27, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am
Zoom

Make and makefiles can be used to automate the compilation of source code into executable programs, the execution of analysis scripts on data files, the production of data visualizations, and the combination of analyses and figures to create papers and publications.  Make is useful because it can execute a complex sequence of commands but also explicitly record the dependencies between files and determine which selective subset of commands need to be recreated when files change.  We will explore how to…
