GNU Make is a tool which controls the generation of executables and other non-source files of a program from the program’s source files.

Make gets its knowledge of how to build your program from a file called the makefile, which lists each of the non-source files and how to compute it from other files. When you write a program, you should write a makefile for it, so that it is possible to use Make to build and install the program.

On Bede’s ppc64le nodes, make 4.2 is provided by default, and A more recent version of make, is provided by the make family of modules.

module load make
module load make/4.3

For more information on the usage of make, see the online documentation or run man make after loading the module.
