Thunderbird 18.104.22.168 (Windows/20060719)
Strictly not a Make question, this, but it's close. I'm trying to figure
out a way I can automate a method whereby I can convert a recursive make
situation into one single makefile, by parsing (a little bit) the
existing Makefiles (this is a bit easier than replacing the whole thing).
I've got most of the details worked out, but one thing I'd like to do is
pull in multi-line variables, you know :
Obviously if you "cat foo |grep FILES" you'll get "FILES=one \" in the
output. I want something that understands the escape characters so that
it reads in all the lines and treats it as one line (which is
technically what it is).
Any pointers, or shall I just go away and write an awk script to do it ?
