c++.command-line - spaces before target in makefiles

reply "Denis Troshin" <weiv mail.ru> writes:
Here is an example of mak-file:

test.exe : test.obj
link test.obj

test.obj: test.c
sc -c test.c


If I insert a space before target, SMAKE says:

SMAKE fatal error: SNAPSHOT.MAK(1): syntax error: "
": "
" missing EndOfFile in makefile

There a lot of other errors because of spaces

Shame on you GUYS!

Where exactly are you putting a space?

Here are line numbers and column numbers: 123456789 1: test.exe : test.obj 2: link test.obj 3: test.obj : test.c 4: sc -c test.c For example, if I insert space on line 1 at column 1, previous example will look like this: 123456789 1: test.exe : test.obj 2: link test.obj 3: test.obj : test.c 4: sc -c test.c In this case SMAKE says: SMAKE fatal error: SNAPSHOT.MAK(1): syntax error: " ": " " missing EndOfFile in makefile

Works a lot better if you use tabs, not spaces. Shame on you for now using the tool correctly.

Here are line numbers and column numbers: ___123456789 1: test.exe : test.obj 2: link test.obj 3: test.obj : test.c 4: sc -c test.c Now at position (1, 1) is letter 't'. For example, if I insert space on line 1 at column 1, previous example will look like this: ___123456789 1: test.exe : test.obj 2: link test.obj 3: test.obj : test.c 4: sc -c test.c At position (1, 1) will be space. In this case SMAKE says: SMAKE fatal error: SNAPSHOT.MAK(1): syntax error: " ": " " missing EndOfFile in makefile

That is a syntax error. Leading spaces are not allowed on target lines. For
better or worse, that's how makefiles work.
