I understand that visual studio has a nmake tool for building a project from a makefile.
What I want to do is to be able to build my project outside the Visual Studio IDE, from command line using nmake.
I found some tutorials about writing a windows makefile for nmake, but I think visual studio should be able to do this automaticlly.
So, my question is, how do I generate this makefile from visual studio 2005? Of course, if that is possible

thx in advance

A makefile is a text file that tells a compile how to compile and link a program. Tutorial here.
