in reply to Using MAKE for building Perl programmes?

I usually use make (or nmake) for projects in which there is a hierarchy of dependencies with cacheable intermediate products, like object files. Do your four passes correspond to four separate compilations of four source files? If so, nmake can speed up the build process by only compiling the files that have changed. Otherwise, I can't see any advantage to using make over perl.

    Good point, the four builds (done by PerlApp) are independant. But three of them may not change - so we may not need to build them.
