target:: %.tgt: %.src

instead of

target: %.tgt:: %.src

Tue 08 Aug 2006 07:00:57 PM UTC, original submission:

I would like a way to write static-pattern double-colon rules.

For example:

a.tgt b.tgt: %.tgt:: %.src
cp $< $@

will cause the error:
make: *** No rule to make target `:', needed by `a.tgt'. Stop.

when I try to 'make a.tgt'

The attached script will setup a basic environment to demonstrate the feature.
