I never knew that worked. Why do they always say make && make test && make install then?

    Why do they always say make && make test && make install then?
    Because each step can fail, and you generally don't want to make install if you haven't gotten past make, or make test (although make install first does a make, things can get hard to follow).

    MJD says "you can't just make shit up and expect the computer to know what you mean, retardo!"
    I run a Win32 PPM repository for perl 5.6.x and 5.8.x -- I take requests (README).
