I've written a shell script called "makeup" that searches for a Makefile in
the current directory. If it doesn't find one, it keeps searching up the
directory structure. That way, I can type "makeup" in any directory in the
project and it will find the Makefile.
You can create a command that runs "makeup" and that should do what you want.
# usage: makeup [args...]
# Finds the first makefile in the current directory or any directory above and
# then runs make, passing on any args given to this script.
while [ /bin/true ] ; do
if [ -f Makefile || -f makefile ] ; then
# If we've found a makefile, go back to the original directory and use
# the -C flag to tell make to run from the directory where we found
# the makefile. We do this so that error messages produced during the
# make process are relative to the current directory. I think.
make -C $here $*
# Stop if we're in the top directory.
if [ "/" == `pwd` ] ; then
# No parent directory
echo no makefile found
# Keep swimming...keep swimming...swimming, swimming, swimming...
