Follow-up Comment #8, bug #47399 (project make): Just to clarify, it's not support for the include keyword we're discussing here. I have no problem believing that various make implementations provided some kind of include facility before GNU make even existed: it seems an obviously useful extension.
Here we're talking about the "rebuild included makefiles" feature specifically. Perhaps one or all of these earlier incarnations DID provide for rebuilding included makefiles, I don't know. But we'd need to look more deeply than checking to see if the grammar provides for an "include" keyword to find out. But, that's certainly interesting! I may pull some of those older sources down just for historical purposes. Thanks for digging these up! _______________________________________________________ Reply to this item at: <https://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/?47399> _______________________________________________ Message sent via Savannah https://savannah.gnu.org/
