Sorry, perhaps I was unclear. I am interested in the "test.mk:5" text.
I don't mind the specific details or error code which is output later
in the line. Just the line number is my request.

Sorry for my misunderstanding.

Does the --trace switch do what you want?

I typed "make --trace -f test.mk" but it did not work. Sorry, perhaps I have miss-understood how to set this option? Perhaps there is an FAQ. I looked in the Make manual.

I also tried "make -d -f test.mk" but that did not print line numbers.

Best regards, Jon
