    Thanks, but it isn't quite right.

    if doit.pl has a problem but doit2.pl is ok, it doesn't stop the install

    Using the filenames from my question. Foo has a syntax error while bar is a ok. This proceeds to install the files when I want to prevent that:

    install: foo bar for pl in $^; do perl -c -Mstrict $$pl; done $(INSTALL) $^ /home/ltharris/tests/makestuf /installdir
    Any other suggestions? Thanks in advance.

      Make only cares about the exit status of the shell; the shell eats them in the for loop. Try perl -c -Mstrict $$pl || exit 1

      (I'm not a make wizard but I might try to create a "perl -c" target for each of the files in question. Well, a transformation rule perhaps. No idea on how to achieve that...)
