  • An Automatic Make Facility
    Holyer and Pehlivan 2000 - Program uses no makefile. It records manually-issued compilation commands the first time round, then rebuilds programs using recorded command traces.
  • A Case For Make
    Fowler 1990 - Explains many old-make limitations and new-make (Nmake) features including procedure rules, accuracy mechanisms, viewpathing, and semaphores for blocking unwanted parallelism.
  • Compare and Contrast Lucent Nmake and GNU Make
    Lucent FAQ - Summarizes the function and typical syntax of many make features, using a convenient table format.
  • The Fourth Generation Make
    Fowler 1985 - A new make tool with support for CPP, dependency generation, compiled makefiles, parallel execution, pathname parsing operators, and a powerful metalanguage for builtin rules.
  • Make - A Program For Maintaining Computer Programs
    Feldman 1979 - The original make paper, including makefile syntax, implicit rules, double colon targets, macros, VPATH macro, and the usual cleanup and install targets.
  • Make It - Generating and Maintaining Makefiles Automatically
    Sch?nherr and Wolff 1998 - A set of makefile dependency generator tools for working with files written in Knuth's Literate Programming style.
  • Makefile Setup for Java
    Geosoft - A GNU Make and shell script setup for Java. Features dependency scanning, class files, JAR archives, JNI interfaces, RMI stub and skeletons, and Javadoc.
  • Parallel and Distributed Compilations in Loosely-Coupled Systems - A Case Study Baalbergen 1986 - Distributing machine specific compilation phases among machines with a distributed make program is about 3.5 times faster.
  • PGMAKE: A Portable Distributed Make System
    Lih and Zadok - Reports design issues and results of modifying GNU Make to do distributed makes using the Oakridge PVM Parallel Virtual Machine.
  • Recursive Make Considered Harmful
    Miller - An argument against using recursive make techniques in the presence of cyclic dependencies among project subdirectories.
  • Smart Software Build Tools - Executive Overview
    Jameson 2003 - Management results of a 15-year research project to a build a knowledge-based software build system that calculates and executes scalable, multiplatform software builds with no human labor involved.
  • Smart Software Build Tools - Technical Overview
    Jameson 2003 - Technical overview of a 15-year research project to a build a knowledge-based software build system that dynamically calculates and executes scalable, distributed, multiplatform software builds with no human labor involved.
  • Software Builds
    Codefast - Contains many articles on software build topics such as problem scope, stakeholder design viewpoints, directory structures, architecture models, makefile generator tools and software build methods.
