Compiling and installing the user-exit program

When you finish creating your own user-exit program, you must compile the program code and then install it in the correct directory. You do this by using the make command.

When the make command executes, it reads the Makefile file, supplied with InfoPrint Manager, that is located in the same directory as the sample programs. The Makefile file contains information about the specified target files and the commands necessary to update the target files.

Before you put your user-exit program into general use at your site, you should test it first to make sure that it runs correctly. Because your user-exit program becomes part of the InfoPrint Manager executable code, a defective user-exit program could cause problems with InfoPrint Manager.
