makepp takes over from

Since my project was progressing very slowly, I took a new look at its closest competitor, makepp.  It is so much superior to GNU make, that I am putting up with make's strange syntax.  With that is dead, and I will also contribute my builtin commands to makepp.

I had not seen the advantage of my 100% Perl syntax in a makefile.  It makes a makefile rather hard to read, and forces build system maintaners to know Perl. The same is true of a coming up hybrid, PBS, which writes the makefiles in Perl, yet puts in the commands in strings, like make. – Perl – Index

Here you can find just about everything allows you to use.
