    Trophy Points:
    I am modifying a big program written by somebody else.
    When I modified some ".h" files, say a.h, then I run "make all", but I
    found out make didn't recompile those files which included "a.h" file. In
    my case "a.h" has some inline functions, so I have to manually remove
    those .o files in order to get a fresh incremental build.

    My question is: is this phenomenon caused by bad-wrritten make files or I
    misunderstood the functionality of make? Thanks.
