chroot: i read in another thread that you don't use ides. Maybe you can help me, i'm looking for a makefile book before I start grad school this fall. I normally use vc6 but since i gotta start remembering to use linux, i need to learn to make my own makes.

The book i'm looking for is part of a series of books that look the same(i think the publisher is oreilly, tiger symbol). The series has a white background with a colored region for the title area(i think the makefile one is brown/maroon).
Any help you can give me finding this book or a better makefil book would be much appreciated.

chroot: Yes I think thats the book thank you very much. Have you used it before? Is there a better book to learn from or will this book suffice.
I will be compiling in linux, the project will involve rendering, N-body, Parallel.

I dunno. I haven't made any really, really complex Makefiles, so, normally, everything I need can be found by typing info make at the command line.
