Hello guys,

I would like several files to be copied from "folderA" to "folderB" automatically after each "make".
Does anyone know how to add a post-build line into the makefile?


p.s. Linux noob here.

you can write shell command in makefile
after last make command in your makefile, enter your copy command

all: example.o
$(CC) -o application_name example.o -I.
cp -r folderA/* folderB/*

Thank you for the link.

Where does that block of text go inside the Makefile?
