NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       autoreconf2.13 - update configure scripts

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       autoreconf2.13  [  --help | -h ] [ --force | -f ] [ --localdir=dir | -l
       dir ] [ --macrodir=dir | -m dir ] [ --verbose ] [ --version ]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       If you have a lot of Autoconf-generated configure scripts, the  autore-
       conf2.13  program  can  save  you some work.  It runs autoconf2.13 (and
       autoheader2.13, where appropriate) repeatedly to  remake  the  Autoconf
       configure  scripts  and configuration header templates in the directory
       tree rooted at the current directory.   By  default,  it  only  remakes
       those  files  that  are	older  than their configure.in or (if present)
       aclocal.m4.  Since autoheader2.13 does not change the timestamp of  its
       output  file  if the file wouldn't be changing, this is not necessarily
       the minimum amount of work.  If you install a new version of  Autoconf,
       you  can  make  autoreconf2.13 remake all of the files by giving it the
       --force option.

       If  you	give  autoreconf2.13  the  --macrodir=DIR  or	--localdir=DIR
       options,  it  passes them down to autoconf2.13 and autoheader2.13 (with
       relative paths adjusted properly).

       autoreconf2.13 does not support having, in  the	same  directory  tree,
       both directories that are parts of a larger package (sharing aclocal.m4
       and acconfig.h), and directories that are  independent  packages  (each
       with  their  own  aclocal.m4 and acconfig.h).  It assumes that they are
       all part of the same package, if  you  use  --localdir,	or  that  each
       directory is a separate package, if you don't use it.  This restriction
       may be removed in the future.

       autoreconf2.13 accepts the following options:


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


       -f     Remake even configure scripts and configuration headers that are
	      newer  than  their  input  files	(configure.in and, if present,


       -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 name of each directory where autoreconf2.13 runs auto-
	      conf2.13 (and autoheader2.13, if appropriate).

	      Print the version number of Autoconf and exit.
