.ACTIONWRAP special atom allows easy modification of all rules in an nmake execution.

  • Use to specify action to be expanded in place of original action
    • nmake behavior unchanged if .ACTIONWRAP not defined
  • Expansion takes place in original rule context
  • All automatic variables refer to original rule values
    • Allows testing of target attributes
  • No new syntax introduced
    • Pre-existing $(@) variable expands to action for original rule
