Make

(programming, tool)
The Unix tool to automate the recompilation, linking etc. of programs, taking account of the interdependencies of modules and their modification times. Make reads instructions from a "makefile" which specifies a set of targets to be built, the files they depend on and the commands to execute in order to produce them.

Most C systems come with a make. There is also one produce by GNU.

make

A developer's "build" utility that causes a program to be compiled, tested, packaged and deployed. It executes a file of commands (the "makefile") that identifies the files in the project and the tasks to be performed. Stemming from the Unix world, variations for Windows and other platforms have been developed. See build and Ant.
