It is a precompiler of embedded SQL to C++ and Java 
(, so the suffixes are and, so the result suffixes are .cc and .java.

This is a typical piece of text I have to include in every '': : $(UESQL_GENERATED_FILES)
        $(UESQLC) $< --output=$@                    \
                     --cdml-path=$(UESQL_CDML_PATH) \
                     --main-file                    \
                     --language=c++                 \
                     --target=$(UESQL_TARGET)       \

By the way, not so long ago I send a request for enhancement in the Intel C++ 
for Linux, to add support to AUTOCONF/LIBTOOL. The request was moved to the 
next version of the ICC, I hope that this will be the release 7.0.
