For 2023 - we are now fully retired from IT training.
We have made many, many friends over 25 years of teaching about Python, Tcl, Perl, PHP, Lua, Java, C and C++ - and MySQL, Linux and Solaris/SunOS too. Our training notes are now very much out of date, but due to upward compatability most of our examples remain operational and even relevant ad you are welcome to make us if them "as seen" and at your own risk.

Lisa and I (Graham) now live in what was our training centre in Melksham - happy to meet with former delegates here - but do check ahead before coming round. We are far from inactive - rather, enjoying the times that we are retired but still healthy enough in mind and body to be active!

I am also active in many other area and still look after a lot of web sites - you can find an index ((here))

Articles and tips on this subjectupdated
4585What is make? What is gcc?
Make is a tool which lets you define a whole series of commands you need to run to get from the basic data and program source files that you work on during development, or distribute to your technical customers into the final product / products that you need. Typically and traditionally, make reads ...
4013Web Frameworks - nested templates
There are times when an inversion of long-accepted logic makes sense. I've been working in a many-floored office block in Salford this week, with a bank of lifts to travel between floors. Rather than press a button for your floor once you're in the lift, you press a button in the lift lobby when you ...
3666Makefile variables - defined internally, from the command line and from the environment
How do you control makefiles from the environment in which they are run? You can do so with make variables, which can be set externally from your calling shell / program, or from the make command line. If I set a shell variable and export it, it will be available in my Makefile. If I specify a variable ...
3658Using Make for a distribution
Although Make has traditionally been used to build C and C++ programs, its uses are far wider - here's a new example in which I've used it to test a whole series of Python programs, and if they all test correctly to build a distribution (tar) file. Scenario - three Python programs / classes for distribution. ...
3652A Complete makefile example
Part of a series, written to brush up some make notes I'm using for some make training next week Let's write a complete makefile - from first principles:   # This is our first makefile      # Target "always" never exists, so rules will always run      always:       echo ...
3651Makefile - some basics, and a demonstration
Here is a basic rule from a makefile:   mytarget:   mysource       echo "myactions"       uptime > mytarget       cat -n mysource >> mytarget mytarget depends on mysource. In other words, ...
3632What is Make?
Make is a build tool. Let me give you some examples of where it might be used: • If you're making an executable program, there is often a quite complex series of instructions to follow to convert your source files into the final executable file (your ultimate target). • Similarly, if you're ...
3053Make - automating the commands for building and installing
Coding projects (and their open source distributions) require build scripts - files of commands that convert the source code into executable programs, that install the various resultant files into place, and that can clean up the build area for a fresh build or for redistribution. The make system - ...
2674Make and makefiles - a commented example to help you learn
If you're making an executable C++ file you build it from a whole lot of .o files, each of which you have compiled from a .cpp file. And you also build in library files. If you change a .cpp file, then you have to recompile it into a .o ... but don't forget that you also have to recompile the .cpp ...
1671Compiling C programs with gcc - an overview
Gcc - the "Gnu Compiler Collection" - is used to compile AND to link C language programs in an open source environment. A single command - gcc runs a series of phases that take you from source code through to an executable program file, with the actual steps taken works out based on: • the extensions ...
694Ant and Make
In order to produce a file of answers in many applications, you need to take several files of inputs and run a program to generate the results. The inputs themselves may be answers produced by running further programs on further inputs, and so on until you have a whole huge tree of inputs that are ...
