Please post an example.
Many makefiles are not written using the C++ language, but
by hand.

Also, makefiles are not a part of the _standard_ C++ language
and are off-topic to this newsgroup. Try a newsgroup dedicated
to your platform.

well.. I need to create a MakeFile for a create release program and
there is an older program that was written in C++ which created a
Batchfile.. so based on that program I am supposed to write a makefile
( in python) .. I dont know much about Makefiles or batch files.. so
any help about how to "read" them will help.. I know this is a rather
general question but thats all I know now.
Thanks,
Faith

1. Don't top-post. Replies are appended to the bottom of
a reply or interspersed.
2. There is a fundamental syntax to a makefile and your compiler
or operating system would contain more details.
3. Have you tried searching the web?
I used Google and came up with this:
