Read and Evaluate Makefile (load)

load file-glob

Read in and evaluate GNU Makefile file-glob..

file-glob should resolve after glob expansion to single GNU Makefile. Target dependencies are updated after reading in the file.

Here are several possible uses of this command.

In debug sessions you can fix the source code and the run load to have the code reread in, to test out the fix.

Another use is to have pecific “debug”-oriented Makefiles that aren’t normally used, but when you want to trace things are avialable. This is an aspect of aspect-oriented programming
