NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       m4 - GNU macro processor

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       GNU  `m4' is an implementation of the traditional UNIX macro processor.
       It is mostly SVR4 compatible, although  it  has	some  extensions  (for
       example,  handling  more  than 9 positional parameters to macros). `m4'
       also has builtin functions for including files, running shell commands,
       doing arithmetic, etc.  Autoconf needs GNU `m4' for generating `configure'
 scripts, but not for running them.

       This manual page was written for the Debian  distribution  because  the
       original program does not have a manual page.  Instead, it has documentation
 in the GNU Info format.  The manual is also  available  in  HTML
       format in the m4-doc package.
