I am trying to compile a matlab preprocessor (Dynare) which is in my Desktop folder on my macbook pro (v10.5.6). I downloaded Xcode and installed it. Instructions tell me to do the following: yourcomputername:~ yourname$ cd ~/Desktop/dynare/preprocessor/ yourcomputername:~ yourname$ make But the make command gives the error: make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop. I'd appreciate any help in solving this problem! Thanks.
