tclmake -- a Tcl-only make-like utility

This release: 0.2 devel -- unreleased

tclmake is a simple make-like utility written entirely in Tcl. It reads files written in a subset of regular make, but with the commands for each rule written in Tcl.

For example, a rule and command might look like:

  tclIndex: main.tcl parse.tcl update.tcl
        auto_mkindex [pwd] main.tcl parse.tcl update.tcl
tclmake has some interesting features:

tclmake has some simple enhancements to provide useful default actions even if there is no makefile, and to make recursion in subdirectories simpler.


tclmake is alpha-release software. It has the potential to do a lot of damage to your files, so please try tclmake in a test directory first.
