CHEATMAKE(1)			[FIXME:	manual]			  CHEATMAKE(1)

NAME
       cheatmake - fool	make into not rebuilding certain files

SYNOPSIS
       cheatmake [hidechangefile] [show] [whyfile]

DESCRIPTION
       cheatmake is used to save time when recompiling.	It can fool make into
       skipping	files that haven't changed in a	meaningful way.	This can be
       used for	instance when you change a comment in a	file but none of the
       actual code.

       This utility is part of the KDE Software	Development Kit.

OPTIONS
       hidechange file
	   Hides the fact that file was	changed	by setting the timestamp into
	   the past. Use with care!

       show
	   Lists what files make currently needs to rebuild

       why file
	   Explains why	make must rebuild file

ENVIRONMENT
       One of the following variables (but not both) should be set if the
       source directory	is different from the build directory. If the build
       directory is simply a subdirectory of the source	directory, the simpler
       variable	OBJ_SUBDIR should be used.

       OBJ_SUBJDIR
	   Indicates that the build directory is in the	given subdirectory of
	   the source directory. For instance, if the source directory is
	   kdesdk and the build	directory is kdesdk/obj-i386-linux, then
	   OBJ_SUBDIR should be	set to obj-i386-linux.

       OBJ_REPLACEMENT
	   A sed expression that is used to transform the source directory
	   into	the build directory. For instance, if the source directory is
	   kdesdk/obj-i386-linux, then OBJ_REPLACEMENT should be set to
	   s#kdesdk#kdesdk-obj#.
