    best for large projects

    In the unix and linux world, make is often the key command at the operating system level when developing a complex application. Where the source for the application often (and indeed should) reside in several directories. While also too in the Microsoft operating systems, GNU offers make. The standard online man pages are too terse for understanding fully what make can do. Thus this book. It shows the complexity inherent within the make syntax. Added over 20 years, because they were found useful by many. But ironically, this increased power came at a cost of harder learning and usage. Nonetheless, it may well be worth your while to study sections of the book. Especially the chapter on managing large projects. Experienced developers know that that is when make is truly invaluable. You often have deep directory trees, and each source directory having its own Makefile, that calls those in lower directories. Plus, the ability to only compile what has been changed is a huge time saver.
