I'm trying to rid myself of the Visual Studio IDE and create a makefile that calls nmake to compile my program. I searched all over google and can't find anything helpful. The version of Visual Studio I have doesn't have an "export makefile" option (I checked online and confirmed this). Are there any good tutorials out there for creating a complicated makefile for nmake (not just 1 or 2 .cpp files, I have a whole bunch)? Thanks in advance.

If you're going for a new build system, don't use NMake. It's old and creaky and nonstandard. Try Ant or SCons.
