Hi Jason! Is there any good resources you'd recommend on creating makefiles? I just learned about this today and I am fascinated by it! However, based on your suggested structure for a project, I don't know really know how to write rules in the makefile for grabbing files that are in include and src.
Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated! I am a beginner in c++.

Afraid I don't have anything formal. I've kinda figured out Makefiles by experimentation and fragments of examples over the years.

If you want, you can take a look at MousePaw Media's documentation on our C/C++ build system, which combines CMake and Makefiles. The system is a bit unconventional, but it works extraordinarily well.
