    You can't use make to loop based on a changing state. You need to use something else.
    It is too clear and so it is hard to see.
    A dunce once searched for fire with a lighted lantern.
    Had he known what fire was,
    He could have cooked his rice much sooner.

    Thanks for the reply,

    but this is working know,

    like
    Code:
    main :
               
    		for /r ${CWD} %%X in (*.txt) do (echo %%X)
    	
    	
    all : main
    	echo "Hello "
    	echo ${make}
    	 C:\MinGW\bin\make main
    which is listing all the txt files from the current directory then why it cannot take out the count,
    please help me if any alternate please inform me.
