clmake - color wrapper for make(1) and less(1) SYNOPSIS
clmake [ -f makefile ] [ option ] ... target ... DESCRIPTION
clmake acts as a wrapper around make(1) to ease reading the output by colorizing it. It also pipes the output to the less(1) text pager. OPTIONS
clmake uses the same command line options as make(1). USAGE
To change a makefile to use clmake, you may change the path at the top which normally reads #!/usr/bin/make to #!/usr/bin/clmake. Alternately, you may type clmake whenever you would normally type make when compiling programs. AUTHORS
Bjarni R. Einarsson is the author of clmake. This manual page was written for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution because the original program does not have a manual page. This manual page was written by Joe Wreschnig <>, for the Debian GNU/Linux system (but may be used by others). SEE ALSO
