fpcmake - The Free Pascal makefile constructor program.
fpcmake [-Ttarget] [-pwhrqvV] [filename [filename [filename]]]
fpcmake reads a Makefile.fpc and converts it to a Makefile
suitable for reading by GNU make to compile your projects. It is
similar in functionality to GNU autoconf or Imake for making X
fpcmake accepts filenames of makefile description files as it's
command-line arguments. For each of these files it will create a
Makefile in the same directory where the file is located, overwriting
any existing file with the same name.
If no options are given, it just attempts to read the file
Makefile.fpc in the current directory and tries to construct a
Makefile from it. any previously existing Makefile will be erased.
See fpcmake(5) for a description of the format of the
fpcmake has a small number of options to control it's behaviour:
- Emit a short help text describing the use of fpcmake
- If this option is given, a package description file is generated as well
as a makefile.
- Tells fpcmake to be more quiet, i.e. emit less messages.
- If this option is given, fpcmake will recursively scan
subdirectories for makefile.fpc files and generate makefiles for
- Specifies the targets for which fpcmake should generate makefiles.
This can be a comma-separated list of target systems, or the special
identifier all which indicates that a makefile should be generated
for all supported platforms.
- This option instructs fpcmake to be more verbose.
- Print fpcmake version and exit.
- This is the standard option and tells fpcmake to generate a
