clmake(1) color wrapper for make(1) and less(1)


clmake [ -f makefile ] [ option ] ... target ...


clmake acts as a wrapper around make(1) to ease reading the output by colorizing it. It also pipes the output to the less(1) text pager.


clmake uses the same command line options as make(1).


To change a makefile to use clmake, you may change the path at the top which normally reads #!/usr/bin/make to #!/usr/bin/clmake.

Alternately, you may type clmake whenever you would normally type make when compiling programs.


Bjarni R. Einarsson is the author of clmake.
