Re: NEW queue

Not exactly, AFAIK:


A phony target is one that is not really the name of a file. It is just a name
for some commands to be executed when you make an explicit request. There are
two reasons to use a phony target: to avoid a conflict with a file of the same
name, and to improve performance.

The phony target will cease to work if anything ever does create a file named
`clean' in this directory. Since it has no dependencies, the file `clean'
would inevitably be considered up to date, and its commands would not be
executed. To avoid this problem, you can explicitly declare the target to be
phony, using the special target .PHONY
