Building Projects With Imake

 in
Here's an explanation of how Imake works and how you can use it to build your executables—an article for programmers with C and Unix programming skills.
Custom Imake Rules

In some cases, it is useful to write your own custom rules for generating Makefiles. The Imake system makes it easy to specify a different set of configuration files than the usual /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/config. This kind of customization is beyond the scope of this article, but O'Reilly publishes a great book on Imake that has several chapters devoted specifically to this topic. See Resources for more information on that book.
