NAME

mamexec - make abstract machine executor

SYNOPSIS

mamexec [ options ] [ target ... ]

DESCRIPTION

mamexec reads MAM (Make Abstract Machine) target and prerequisite file descriptions from the standard input and executes actions to update targets that are older than their prerequisites. Mamfiles are generated by the --mam option of nmake(1) and gmake(1) and are portable to environments that only have sh(1) and cc(1).

A separate mamstate(1) program is used to compare current and state file target times. mamexec is a ksh(1) script implementation that has been replaced by the standalone mamake(1). New applications should use mamake.

OPTIONS

-d, --debug

Set the debug trace level to level. Higher levels produce more output.
-f, --force

Force all targets to be out of date.
-i, --ignore

Ignore shell action errors.
-n, --exec

Enable shell action execution. On by default; -n means --noexec.
-s, --silent

Do not trace shell actions as they are executed.

SEE ALSO

mamake(1), mamstate(1), nmake(1)
