# mk

Task runner for targets described in Mkfile. Mostly used to control the compilation of an executable from source code. More information: http://doc.cat-v.org/plan_9/4th_edition/papers/mk.

• Call the first target specified in the Mkfile (usually named "all"):

mk

• Call a specific target:

mk {{target}}

• Call a specific target, executing 4 jobs at a time in parallel:

NPROC=4 mk {{target}}

• Force mking of a target, even if source files are unchanged:

mk -w{{target}} {{target}}

• Assume all targets to be out of date. Thus, update target and all of its dependencies:

mk -a {{target}}

• Keep going as far as possible on error:

mk -k
