Re: Makefile Errors

That has nothing to do with the Makefile Error (aside from the line #), Rich.

Yolan, look on line 20 in the makefile,
you see those  spaces before the  filenames in the OBJFILES declaration
(assuming that's what's on your line 20).
those should NOT under ANY circumstances be spaces,
those "spaces" are supposed to be  the <TAB> character.

just delete the spaces, and insert a TAB in there,
you'll be ready to MAKE in no time :-P
