Python Script Execution in Makefile

    Hey

    I have only had to use make files for basic things before. At the
    moment I have two systems I am working with. One has a python script
    that updates a large number of static text files. The other is
    actually a program generator that generates code based off these
    files. I have a bash script to work around the issue right now, but is
    there anyway in a Makefile that I can force a python script to run
    before actually compiling? Any script for that matter. I have found
    little documentation on this/don't know where to look.

    Sorry if its a terribly easy question, even a link in the right
    direction would help.
    Thanks

    Sorry, ignore this. I realized almost immediately after posting how
    incredibly stupid that question is.
    Sorry for wasting your time. I had it in my mind that executing
    something other then the compiler was special in some way.
