<P><STRONG>mamo</strong> stands for <STRONG>MakeModules</strong>. Working on top of GNU-<STRONG>make</strong> and the <STRONG>Template Toolkit</strong> its intention is to automate common
tasks to the highest degree possible. You should be able to create a
source file, tell <STRONG>mamo</strong> about it and the targets you want and let
<STRONG>mamo</strong> care about the rest.</p>
<P><STRONG>mamo</strong> consists of a collection of <EM>Makefile</em> snippets called
modules. Each module defines features for a single or some related
common tasks. For instance module <CODE>C</code> defines features for generating
object files from C sources, module <CODE>Pod</code> defines features to
generate documentation from pod sources, while module <CODE>Install</code>
defines features for installing files in various ways locally or on a
remote host. The important module <CODE>Subdirectory</code> defines recursive
operation in a directory tree. In no way the tasks are limited to
programming. For instance <STRONG>mamo</strong> can be used to maintain a web site.</p>
<P><STRONG>mamo</strong> is used from a user <EM>Makefile</em>. The <EM>Makefile</em> has to do two

definitions which may or may not relate to <STRONG>mamo</strong>.</p>
