1.1 How to Read This Manual
If you are new to `make', or are looking for a general introduction,
read the first few sections of each chapter, skipping the later
sections. In each chapter, the first few sections contain introductory
or general information and the later sections contain specialized or
technical information. The exception is the second chapter, An
Introduction to Makefiles Introduction, all of which is introductory.
If you are familiar with other `make' programs, see Features
of GNU `make' Features, which lists the enhancements GNU `make' has,
and Incompatibilities and Missing Features Missing, which
explains the few things GNU `make' lacks that others have.
For a quick summary, see Options Summary, Quick
Reference, and Special Targets.
