GTest sample Makefile
# A sample Makefile for building Google Test and using it in user
# tests. Please tweak it to suit your environment and project. You
# may want to move it to your project's root directory.
# make [all] - makes everything.
# make TARGET - makes the given target.
# make clean - removes all files generated by make.
# Please tweak the following variable definitions as needed by your
# project, except GTEST_HEADERS, which you can use in your own targets
# but shouldn't modify.
# Points to the root of Google Test, relative to where this file is.
# Remember to tweak this if you move this file.
# Where to find user code.
# Flags passed to the preprocessor.
# Set Google Test's header directory as a system directory, such that
# the compiler doesn't generate warnings in Google Test headers.
CPPFLAGS += -isystem $(GTEST_DIR)/include
# Flags passed to the C++ compiler.
CXXFLAGS += -g -Wall -Wextra -pthread
# All tests produced by this Makefile. Remember to add new tests you
# created to the list.
TESTS = test_mihai
# All Google Test headers. Usually you shouldn't change this
# definition.
GTEST_HEADERS = $(GTEST_DIR)/include/gtest/*.h \
# House-keeping build targets.

clean :
rm -f $(TESTS) gtest.a gtest_main.a *.o
# Builds gtest.a and gtest_main.a.
# Usually you shouldn't tweak such internal variables, indicated by a
# trailing _.
# For simplicity and to avoid depending on Google Test's
# implementation details, the dependencies specified below are
# conservative and not optimized. This is fine as Google Test
# compiles fast and for ordinary users its source rarely changes.
