I have a Makefile which needs to construct a command line for the program
curl. Curl takes its filename arguments as a strictly comma-delimited list
(i.e., no spaces unless they're part of the filename). In my case I need
to convert the contents of the $? variable from a space-delimited list into
such a comma-delimited list. I can't figure out how to do this using
Make-internal string commands, though.
The $(subst) command is the obvious solution, but I can't figure out how to
escape the space and the comma so that they're recognized by Make. That
is, $(subst \ ,\,,$?) (and variations thereof I've tried) don't work.
$(foreach f,$?,$f,) is not an option as it inserts extraneous space which
Any solutions besides resorting to $(shell tr)?
