Follow-up Comment #5, bug #60799 (project make):
> But my point is that $$ is NOT (intended to be) special to make. That's why
make doesn't do parentheses matching which it sees it.
Sure, we can adopt this stance and say no parentheses matching for $$. i am
not sure this behavior is the most useful make can offer.
Do you think this behavior is consistent from the user's point of view?
This works fine
hello: $$(shell echo world); touch $@
This does not work
hello: $$(shell echo world;); touch $@
You are right that the proposed patch adds parentheses matching and thus makes
$$ special. As far as i understood, you have a concern about making $$
