I don't know what you mean.  Make invokes commands to update targets.
Given a makefile like this:


if the file "foo" does not exist, then make will run the program
"simple" (which it expects to generate/update the file "foo").

Please read the GNU make manual, which is available both online and
comes with the GNU make source distributions, to learn more about how
make works and what it does.
