    Question Make clean command?

    When compiling things from source, you generally do cd whatever, .configure, make, sudo make install.
    But what about make clean? Should you use it? What is it for? Should I use it for Docky?
    Thanks!

    Re: Make clean command?

    make clean deletes all the already compiled object files.
    if you have a failed make, running make clean before trying again is a good idea.

    Things are rarely just crazy enough to work, but they're frequently just crazy enough to fail hilariously.
