    MakeFile example

    I am trying to set up a makefile for use with GNU make for the first time:

    My program has the following files:
    myprog.cpp
    myprog.h

    Then I want to make an object file and include it from these files:
    test.cpp
    test.h

    Here is my makefile:
    Code:
    myprog : myprog.o test.o
    
    myprog.o: myprog.cpp myprog.h
    
    test.o: test.cpp test.h
    Is this correct?

    When I run make.exe, it says this:

    Code:
    C:\Project>make
    cc   myprog.o   -o myprog
    process_begin: CreateProcess(NULL, cc myprog.o -o myprog, ...) failed.
    make (e=2): The system cannot find the file specified.
    make: *** [myprog] Error 2
