Make can not remove *.o file



Hi all

Do you know why can not remove *.o file ? tab already before rm.

AIX : 5.3
gcc version 4.2.0

make -f a01_markfile

-rwxrw---- 1 moonhkt adg 52665 Mar 10 09:20 a01
-rw-rw---- 1 moonhkt adg 647 Mar 10 09:20 a01.o
-rw-rw---- 1 moonhkt adg 122 Mar 09 17:29 a01.c

gcc -v

cat a01_markfile

# 2010/03/10
CC = gcc
PROG = a01
SRCS = a01.c

## This incantation says that the object files
## have the same name as the .c files, but with .o
OBJS = $(SRCS:.c=.o)

## This is the first rule (the default)
## Build the program from the .o's
$(PROG) : $(OBJS)
$(CC) $(OBJS) -o $(PROG)

## Remove all the compilation and debugging files
clean :
rm -f $(OBJS)

Your question is about the "make" tool, not about the C language.

Try comp.unix.programmer.

(BTW, it worked for me, at least once I made sure to use tabs
rather than spaces in the makefile.)
