    'functions' in make?

    heres my newest make file problem. maybe this will make sense soon.

    heres my make file:
    Code:
    str_remove.o : str_remove.c
    	gcc -c str_remove.c
    	ar -cr str_remove.a
    	ranlib str_remove.a
    str_replace.o : str_replace.c
    	gcc -c str_replace.c
    	ar -cr str_replace.a 
    	ranlib str_replace.a
    str_copy.o : str_copy.c
    	gcc -c str_copy.c
    	ar -cr str_copy.a 
    	ranlib str_copy.a
    str_count.o : str_count.c
    	gcc -c str_count.c
    	ar -cr str_count.a 
    	ranlib str_count.a
    str_insert.o : str_insert.c
    	gcc -c str_insert.c
    	ar -cr str_insert.a 
    	ranlib str_insert.a
    str_move.o : str_move.c str_remove.c str_insert.c
    	gcc -c str_move.c str_remove.c str_insert.c
    	ar -cr str_move.a 
    	ranlib str_move.a
    .PHONY: all clean
    all:
    	str_remove.o
    	str_replace.o
    	str_copy.o
    	str_count.o
    	str_insert.o
    	str_move.o
    clean:
    	rm *.o
    	rm *.a
    when i run make all i get
    Code:
    str_remove.o
    process_begin: CreateProcess(I:\libraries\strings\str_remove.o, str_remove.o, ..
    .) failed.
    make (e=193): Error 193make: *** [all] Error 193
    so can you use rules as functions? whats wrong?

    No need for a new thread, we're still going with the old one
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]
