Compiler warnings getting you down? People complaining about all the “weird garbage” printed when they type
make? Fear not — there's a solution!
A while ago I had occasion to build a particular (over)complicated project that had recently been ported from Windows to Unix. The Windows version spewed pages of warnings when building, but on Unix there was none of that — just an empty terminal with a helpful success message.
Wait a minute...
At the end of the makefile's default rule, I found this:
clear echo Done building $(TARGET)!
I hope you wouldn't consider doing anything like that. Now, if you'll excuse me, I have so many warnings to look at...
