Because on Windows there is no make utility that does parallel build, we decided to build a very basic one which processes in parallel all the Makefiles that are generated in each C directory. By default it will divide the work among the available CPUs of your machine. Thus the more CPU you have, the faster C compilation will be.
Here is the command line usage:
Usage: emake [-target DIR] [-make MAKE] [-cpu N]
- DIR is the current working directory.
- MAKE is the current make file utility for the C compiler chosen during the installation of EiffelStudio.
- N is the number of CPU of the machine on which it is run.
