Edit Makefile (edit)ΒΆ


Edit Make at the current target location.

The editing program of your choice is invoked with the current line set to the active line in the program.

You can customize to use any editor you want by using the EDITOR environment variable. The only restriction is that your editor, .e.g. ex, recognizes the following command-line syntax:

ex +*number* *filename*

The optional numeric value +number specifies the number of the line in the file where to start editing. For example, to configure remake to use the emacs editor, you could use these commands with the in a POSIX shell:

export EDITOR
remake ...
