Clone of Plan9's mk command, said to have "improved on make by removing all the vowels from the name".

The library exports a generic dependency graph traversal that can be used independently of the rest.

The documentation is embedded in the literate Haskell source.

Note: the library portion is released to the /public domain/. Those source files that are not part of the library are released under GPLv3 or later.
