I wonder how to generate multiple cpp files from one text file? Rule
'make' takes only one target.

When I use


alias genearted : $(ListOfFiles) ;

make generated : $(source) : @somerule ;


I get an error:


error: No best alternative for ./generated

    next alternative: required properties: (empty)
