Hello Matthew,

Your goal is to write a shellscript, that can be invoked by (from within) your Makefile, to update 
the *.c, *.h, and the Makefile itself.

This requirement is very typical - the Makefile (read by the make program) does not, itself, 
perform any of the work, it just determines what needs to be done, and passes each of the action 
lines off to the shell for execution.

There's no requirement to then compile the project's *.c and *.h files.
