Sorry about the shameless plug, but I'd just like to draw some attention to a little utility I knocked up.

It's a small command you can prefix to any command line, and get automatic dependency checking. The command only gets executed if it's inputs have changed since last time.

If any of you guys get a chance to check it out, I'd appreciate any feedback y'all have.

Thanks :-)

Heh, cute hack. Why not just use SCons or something?

As far as gcc is concerned it's redundant as recent gcc can generate those dependencies on the fly while compiling; coupled with make...

%.o: %.cpp
@g++[some flags] -Wp,-MT,$@,-MMD,$(@:.o=.d) -c $< -o $@

-include $(OBJECTS:.o=.d)

.. we get, 3 lines later, instant automatic dependency checkings.
