Flymake can be configured to use different tools for performing syntax
checks. For example, it can use direct compiler call to syntax check a perl
script or a call to @code{make} for a more complicated case of a
script or a call to @command{make} for a more complicated case of a
@code{C/C++} source. The general idea is that simple files, like perl
scripts and html pages, can be checked by directly invoking a
corresponding tool. Files that are usually more complex and generally
used as part of larger projects, might require non-trivial options to
be passed to the syntax check tool, like include directories for
C++. The latter files are syntax checked using some build tool, like
