NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       autoconf2.13  - creates scripts to configure source code packages using

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       autoconf2.13  [	--help	|  -h  ]  [  --localdir=dir  |	-l  dir  ]   [
       --macrodir=dir | -m dir ] [ --version ]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       To  create  configure  from  configure.in, run the autoconf2.13 program
       with no arguments.  autoconf2.13 processes  configure.in  with  the  m4
       macro  processor,  using the Autoconf macros.  If you give autoconf2.13
       an argument, it reads that file instead of configure.in and writes  the
       configuration  script  to  the standard output instead of to configure.
       If you give autoconf2.13 the argument -, it reads  the  standard  input
       instead	of  configure.in  and  writes  the configuration script on the
       standard output.

       The Autoconf macros are defined in several files.  Some	of  the  files
       are  distributed with Autoconf; autoconf2.13 reads them first.  Then it
       looks for the optional file acsite.m4 in the  directory	that  contains
       the  distributed  Autoconf macro files, and for the optional file aclo-
       cal.m4 in the current directory.  Those files can contain  your	site's
       or the package's own Autoconf macro definitions.  If a macro is defined
       in more than one of the files that autoconf2.13 reads, the last definition
 it reads overrides the earlier ones.

       autoconf2.13 accepts the following options:


       -h     Print a summary of the command line options and exit.


       -l DIR Look for the package file aclocal.m4 in directory DIR instead of
	      in the current directory.


       -m DIR Look for the installed macro files in directory  DIR.   You  can
	      also  set  the  AC_MACRODIR environment variable to a directory;
	      this option overrides the environment variable.

	      Print the version number of Autoconf and exit.
