Wow, if this is the concise version, I don't want to have to read the comprehensive one.

Btw, nmake on Windows is from Microsoft according to Wikipedia.

    "-- volumes could be written. But I'll do my best to be concise."
    I did. But part of being concise also means being complete. :)

    Yes. M$ does have a version. But their version is not the original. Wikipedia also complains of the way the document was written. You don't suppose an M$ employee wrote it, do you? :)

    As memory serves; it was either Redhat (Cygnus), or ATT. ATT had a UNIX environment for early Windows, and NT. I've got both copies. But haven't had time to look thoroughly enough to find it.

    The original nmake dates back to the '80's, and my memory isn't so good with tiny, seemingly insignificant details about MS-DOS -- an interpreter I've tried hard to forget. ;)

    All the best, hdb.


    UPDATE; forgot to cite Cygnus

    Yes. What say about me, is true.
