cheatmake - fool make into not rebuilding certain files
cheatmake [hidechangefile] [show] [whyfile]
cheatmake is used to save time when recompiling. It can fool make into skipping files that haven't changed in a meaningful way. This can be used for instance when you change a comment in a file but none of the actual code.
This utility is part of the KDE Software Development Kit.
One of the following variables (but not both) should be set if the source directory is different from the build directory. If the build directory is simply a subdirectory of the source directory, the simpler variable OBJ_SUBDIR should be used.
cheatmake was written by David Faure <email@example.com>. This manual page was prepared by Ben Burton <firstname.lastname@example.org> for the Debian GNU/Linux® system (but may be used by others).
