Thank you for your help and such a quick reply, sorry I didn't give
enough information. I plan on upgrading to 3.81 though currently at 3.79
I am converting nmake make file to gnumake.

Converting this over:


How would you use the $(or condition1, condition2) in the above
Or the ways around using 3.79.

Are there forums or irc that you would recommend, so that if I had small
questions like this I could ask?

Thank you

I'm not sure how to answer this.

If you're using GNU make 3.81 you can use the $(or ...) and $(and ...)

Be sure you understand how make determines true vs. false in boolean

If you aren't using 3.81, there are various tricks you can use: we'll
need more information about EXACTLY what you're trying to do.
