Given that you have the '@' capability, and that the makefile in question is generated, I think there is a suitable solution to the problem. I also like the suggestion to rework the generation of the makefile to avoid the problem. IMO, adding more and more functionality to make is not the answer.

My $02,

    Based on my experience with gmake and the command line limitation, I
think it would be a good idea to have some kind of file IO facility in

In the simplest form, user could be able to write one variable into a file
or read the content of a file into a variable. In a more complex
implementation, facilities such as printf or scanf may be added to it.

What others think about this capability in make?
