What's the problem with this?
all: foo bar @for i in $^ ; \ do \ false ; \ echo $$i ; \ done .PHONY: all foo bar
Well even though
false trips up, the
make will just continue. Usually Make
will just croak if something goes wrong, but since everything is neatly in a
for stanza, this is easy to miss. I wonder if there is a way to
set -e on
Make invoked shells?
Otherwise to fix the problem, you need to add
set -e, like so:
all: foo bar @set -e; for i in $^ ; \ do \ false ; \ echo $$i ; \ done .PHONY: all foo bar
