This package contains a library
MakeFile with datatypes to describe the structure of makefiles and print them in the standard makefile syntax. Furthermore, the package also contains a tool to generate a makefile for a Curry application.

> cpm checkout makefile

This should output a makefile. There are further options to write the output into a file or provide some name to which the main executable will be linked when installing the application with the makefile (use option
If the application needs a specific load path for modules, this load path must be set via the environment variable
CURRYPATH. For instance, to generate a makefile for some package managed with CPM, one can use the CPM command
cpm exec inside the package directory, e.g.,
> cpm exec curry-genmake Main
