create_makefile - Creates and Makefile from a SYNOPSIS
create_makefile [relativepath/Makefile] [relativepath] DESCRIPTION
create_makefile creates the and Makefile in a subdirectory containing a This script saves time compared to re-running configure completely Note that you must supply the path to the desired (though the final /Makefile may be omitted). This script may be run from the toplevel directory (the one containing configure) or from one of it's subdirectories. If the source directory is different from the build directory (see the environment variables below), it will be assumed that the and belong beneath the source directory and that the Makefile belongs beneath the build directory. This utility is part of the KDE Software Development Kit. ENVIRONMENT
One of the following variables (but not both) should be set if the source directory is different from the build directory. If the build directory is simply a subdirectory of the source directory, the simpler variable OBJ_SUBDIR should be used. OBJ_SUBJDIR Indicates that the build directory is in the given subdirectory of the source directory. For instance, if the source directory is kdesdk and the build directory is kdesdk/obj-i386-linux, then OBJ_SUBDIR should be set to obj-i386-linux. OBJ_REPLACEMENT A sed expression that is used to transform the source directory into the build directory. For instance, if the source directory is ~/src/kdesdk and the build directory is ~/src/kdesdk-obj, then OBJ_REPLACEMENT should be set to s#kdesdk#kdesdk-obj#. SEE ALSO

kde-build - Updates and recompiles a tree of KDE CVS modules SYNOPSIS
kde-build has been designed to keep a local copy of several KDE CVS modules up to date and recompile them. Those modules have to be saved in a common directory, e.g. something like ~/kde-src/ | +-> kdelibs/ | +-> kdebase/ | -> kdenetwork/ In this case, the KDE source directory would be ~/kde-src/. The script will take care of compiling them in the correct order, checks for dependencies and resolves them as far as possible. Please not that, prior to first invokation of the script, the configuration file 'kde-buildrc' has to be modified to reflect the local environment, such as paths etc. RETURN VALUE
The following error codes are returned by the script. 0 - No error seems to have occured. 1 - The script could not change into the directory of a module. 2 - The script could not open the file '' of a module. 3 - The configuration of a module failed. 4 - The compilation of a module failed. 5 - The installation of a module failed. 6 - An invalid source directory was specified. 7 - An invalid Qt directory was specified. 8 - An invalid CVS client was specified. 9 - No cvsup server was specified. 10 - The temporary CVSUP configuration file couldn't be created. 11 - The configuration file kde-buildrc couldn't be loaded. EXAMPLES
cd ~/scripts/; vi ./kde-buildrc; ./kde-build BUGS
Lots, mostly that the script wasn't written with portability in mind and therefore won't run very nice on platforms other than Linux. TODO
Add a DIAGNOSIS section to this man page. AUTHOR
