Hi Michael, can you please elaborate on slide #13:

find every Makefile and call make

find . -name "[Mm]akefile" -exec make ; -print

What does it try to achieve?

Thanks heaps!

Hi Suan, It starts in the current directory and then all sub-directories, and looks for all files called Makefile or makefile. For each such file it executes the function make, which we will visit on Wednesday. It then prints the full path to that Makefile
