autoconf

Generate configuration scripts

autoconf [,OPTION/]... [,TEMPLATE-FILE/]

Generate a configuration script from a TEMPLATE-FILE if given, or `configure.ac' if present, or else `configure.in'. Output is sent to the standard output if TEMPLATE-FILE is given, else into `configure'.

Operation modes:

-h, --help
print this help, then exit
-V, --version
print version number, then exit
-v, --verbose
verbosely report processing
-d, --debug
don't remove temporary files
-f, --force
consider all files obsolete
-o, --output=,FILE/
save output in FILE (stdout is the default)
-W, --warnings=,CATEGORY/
report the warnings falling in CATEGORY [syntax]

Warning categories include:

`cross'
cross compilation issues
`obsolete'
obsolete constructs
`syntax'
dubious syntactic constructs
`all'
all the warnings
`no-CATEGORY'
turn off the warnings on CATEGORY
`none'
turn off all the warnings
`error'
warnings are error

The environment variables `M4' and `WARNINGS' are honored.

Library directories:

-B, --prepend-include=,DIR/
prepend directory DIR to search path
-I, --include=,DIR/
append directory DIR to search path

Tracing:

-t, --trace=,MACRO[/:FORMAT]
report the list of calls to MACRO
-i, --initialization
also trace Autoconf's initialization process

In tracing mode, no configuration script is created. FORMAT defaults to `$f:$l:$n:$%'; see `autom4te --help' for information about FORMAT.
