Hi Eduardo,

I have some time using GNU Make, and It has always been ok to me. It's just that I want to do something I hadn't needed to do, I need to compile using a mekefile and another compiler different to GCC. How can I do that? I know there is a CC variable but I dont know if i should set it manually. Thank you very much in advance.
The built-in implicit make rule for compiling C source files to object files uses $(CC) as the compiler. The default value of CC is simply cc, which is defined in the /usr/bin directory (on Linux systems) as the platform's preferred variant of gcc.

Make users can use the command:

  $ make CC=abc

to explicitly build using a different C compiler.
