I'm facing a problem while I'm trying to run NMAKE from a GNU Makefile
to build a subsystem. The makefile is recursively invoking nmake to build a
subdirectory. I'm invoking nmake as follows:
cd dir1 && nmake -f template.mak
Make invokes NMAKE, but NMAKE gives an error saying,
NMAKE : fatal error U1065: invalid option '-'
Running the same line from shell command line works fine.
Does GNU Make know about nmake?
Is NMAKE trying to be smarter than it is?
PS: I would like everything to be in the GNU Makefile format but,
for the sake of curiosity I'd like to know what's wrong
