Much appreciate you for the reply.
At the first example we had n too:
/root> export MAKEFLAGS=--ignore-errorsuuzzz
/root> make -f makefile23
But MAKEFLAGS was not set to n. How make parses the string,
"--ignore-errorsuuzzz"? It adds, hyphen first, it becomes:
"---ignore-errorsuuzzz" then it chops the words, is that right? what
will be the words?
How n is extracted from "---ignore-errorsuuzzz"?
