Thanks but I can't use this approach as the make file is an automatically 
generated one and unfortunately it put all of the obj files in one variable. 
Can I break the variable without using shell commands? Any example of this? 
For example I am thinking of something such as this:

 lib_obj: a0001.obj a0002.obj ...


            $(forecah w in lib_obj)

            Echo $w >test.txt

            ar @test.txt

The difference between this solution and Maxim solution is that in this 
case, I used gmake function and not shell function?
