Is it possible to make the Makefile read directory and parse it in pairs? So what i have a list of files in
./mydir/ that have an infix
_A2_. What I would like to do is to read the content of mydir and paste files in a pairwise manner in parallel so that i have multople paste commands that execute:
paste My_A1_001.txt My_A2_001.txt > My_001.txt paste My_A1_002.txt My_A2_002.txt > My_002.txt paste My_A1_003.txt My_A2_003.txt > My_003.txt ...
So each in its own thread …
L1= $(wildcard *_A1_*) L2= $(wildcard *_A2_*) %.paste: %.$(L1) %.$(L2) (paste ....have no clue what to do here... )
Is this even possible with makefiles ?
