What is a mak file?

MAK files are the files used by the Makefile program. Makefile provides an organizational structure that makes creating large programs and modifying them more efficient. A MAK file contains a text hierarchy that illustrates the relationships between program objects. In large programs, the MAK file makes modifying only one part of a program faster, as the rest of the program is left unchanged. MAK files contain a dependency line that indicates the target followed by the names of the applicable files. Any definitions of how to transform the components into the target are listed under the dependency line.  MAK files are typically in ASCII format which are similar to BAT and CFG files.
