Cook is a tool for constructing files. It is given a set of files to create, and recipes of how to create them. In any non-trivial program there will be prerequisites to performing the actions necessary to creating any file, such as include files. Cook provides a mechanism to define these. When a program is being developed or maintained, the programmer will typically change one file of several which comprise the program. Ccok examines the last-modified times of the files to see when the prerquisites of a file have changed, implying that the file needs to be recreated as it is logically out of date.
