Before I started taking Unix, I knew what a makefile did but I never understood how it worked. Since the first assignment about makefiles, “Make a Makefile”, I have learned a lot more about creating makefiles. Earlier this year before we started learning about this, in one of my other classes called software engineering, I came across a command in QT called qmake. We were never really introduced to this command in that class so I didn’t really understand what was going on. However, Intro to Unix has taught me more about makefiles so then understanding exactly what the command qmake was doing was quite intuitive. Being able to make files executable through a makefile will definitely help me down the road in my career.
