Two main things to understand about make...

1. it's all based around dependancies

2. those dependancies all center around the date of a file.

If you have hello.c and want to build it, then create a "Makefile" as follows...

all: hello

hello.o: hello.c
      $(CC) $(CFLAGS) -c hello.c -o $@

hello: hello.o
      $(CC) $(CFLAGS) hello.o -o $@

The macros CC and CFLAGS are standard macros for your C compiler.

$@ means the target for the rule

So it will say, I want to make "all", so I want to make "hello", that depends on "hello.o" and here are the rules. Ah, I need hello.o first, and there are the rules to make that.
