Hello there, I'm (back-)por
Hello there,

I'm (back-)porting OpenFOAM to Debian/Gnu Linux currently, wondering wether there is some documentation available on how build-scripts are interconnected. Precisely: how do I trigger an equivalent to 'make clean' or 'make distclean'? There are several wclean* - files. However they don't seem to work the same way makeWmake does. Is this option available for users or is it stripped away from the upstream (since Allclean is missing)? How is this whole thing thought to be used?

Thanks in advance,

Try wcleanAll - a bit drastic
Try wcleanAll - a bit drastic though. Otherwise, delete the arch directory in the Make directory for the thing you are building. rmdepall cleans the dependencies.
