    make file ?


    I am wondering if there is any easy way to determine or list
    all the builtin make variables that one has before one creates any by declareing them.

    I have tried make -p but this method is very unclean.
    I was just wondering if there is currently any easier way to just get a simple list of all make file variables builtin.

    As well as there default values maybe.

    Or that maybe to hard looking at make -p again but at least something that allows one to type in a variable in a make file and be able to easilly get all the info on that one particular var in an easy and consices manner.

    Don't want to have to make -p | grep myvar but maybe this is the only way I was just in my mind hoping for a more pleasing method

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Read the documentation on the gnu web site for gmake/make? It is quite complete and should answer this question for you.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
