The problem I am attempting to solve is to have a list of files for a project that I can import into SlickEdit.
I have found myself in an environment that has not only a complicated make (including make files from many other directories) but is heavily project dependent and has many conditionals. It also has many unused files based on the conditionals. They are using clearmake to process the make files.
I am looking to request that the project leaders implement changes to the makefile so it will produce a list of all the files in the project based on a build. I seem to remember this being performed on previous projects. Is what I am asking for something major or minor?
