tmake [\| options \|] project files or project settings


This manual page documents briefly the tmake command. This manual page was written for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution because the original program does not have a manual page. Instead, it has documentation in HTML format; see below.

tmake is an easy-to-use tool from Troll Tech to create and maintain makefiles for software projects. It can be a painful task to manage makefiles manually, especially if you develop for more than one platform or use more than one compiler. tmake automates and streamlines this process and lets you spend your valuable time on writing code, not makefiles.


-h, --help

Show summary of options.


Evaluate the Perl expression. Ignores the template file.


Don't generate dependency information.


Write output to file instead of stdout.


Specify a template file.


Force tmake into Unix mode.


Verbose/debugging on.


Force tmake into Win32 mode.

The -t option overrides any TEMPLATE variable in the project file.

The default project file extension is ".pro". The default template file extension is ".t". If you do not specify these extension tmake will automatically add them for you.


The full documentation for tmake is maintained as an HTML manual, located in /usr/share/doc/tmake/html/, and is available through dhelp(1), Debian's help system.
