hi all,
I have a makefile . Inside the makefile I am supposed to write a shell script (which has an if else loop) and which will return me some value. And in the make file only I am supposed to wrok further with the value returned from the shell script.

1)I cannot write an external standalone file(The shell script have to be written inside the makefile).
2)I have already tried the "shell" command as seen in some other forum posting but w/o any help .

Plese suggest me something on this guys , urgent help required.
