Subject: [PATCH v2 3/5] Makefile: don't needlessly "rm $@ $@+" before "mv $@+ $@"
Date: Mon, 29 Mar 2021 18:20:10 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <patch-3.6-96e2338ed8e-20210329T161723Z-avarab@gmail.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <cover-0.6-00000000000-20210329T161723Z-avarab@gmail.com>

Now that preceding commits have moved the generation of objects and
scripts in the Makefile to use the "[...] -o $@+ && mv $@+ $@" pattern
we can stop removing "$@" and "$@+" before the rule is run.

I suppose that we could leave this at removing "$@" before we start
out, per the "age old convention" comment in[1]. I.e. instead of:

    rm -f thing thing+
    prepare contents for thing >thing+
    mv thing+ thing

Do:

    rm -f thing
    prepare contents for thing >thing+
    mv thing+ thing

Since the removal of "thing+" is redundant as we're about to clobber
it anyway, but we might be so paranoid as to be guarding against mv(1)
leaving behind a corrupt "thing".

But I think guarding against "mv" failing is a step too far in
paranoia, let's just rely on the "[...] -o $@+ && mv $@+ $@" pattern
working instead.

Especially as we'll see in a follow-up commit, we're just about to use
the GNU make ".DELETE_ON_ERROR" feature, which will reliably do this
for us.
