# The question is whether %.intermediate2 should be marked as
# an intermediate target automatically without adding it as a
# prerequisite of .INTERMEDIATE.
# Since %.intermediate1 is marked as intermediate and since
# pattern rules with multiple targets are defined as generating
# all targets after execution, I believe that %.intermediate2
# should receive the same treatment as %.intermediate1 and be
# marked as intermediate.
# To see the basic behavior, simply run make with this file
# named as "Makefile".
# Run 'make set-intermediate=t' to see the behavior I expect
# to see by default: both %.intermediate1 and %.intermediate2
# are deleted by make.

name := test

all: $(name).final

%.final: %.intermediate1 %.intermediate2
cat $^ > $@

$(if $(set-intermediate),$(eval .INTERMEDIATE: $(name).intermediate2))
%.intermediate1 %.intermediate2: %.source
head $< > $*.intermediate1
tail $< > $*.intermediate2

%.source: Makefile
cp $< $@

.PHONY: clean
rm -f $(name).*
