|Full description=Make examines a set of related files, determines which of them are out of date, and runs just the commands necessary to bring them back up to date. Make is typically used to compile and link programs, but it can be useful in many other situations as well. Make reads a file called a 'makefile' to learn how the files in your program are put together. It may also contain rules to install the product, clear up the workspace, generate distribution packages, or other tasks. When you write a program, you should also create a makefile for it so that it is possible to use Make to build and install it.

GNU Make

https://www.gnu.org/software/make/
Generates executables and other non-source programs

Make is a program that is used to control the production of executables or other files from their source files. The process is controlled from a Makefile, in which the developer specifies how each file is generated from its source. It has powerful dependency resolution and the ability to determine when files have to be regenerated after their sources change. GNU make offers many powerful extensions over the standard utility.
