automake - automatically create's from's


automake [ -a | --add-missing ] [ --amdir=DIR ] [ --build-dir=DIR ] [ -c | --copy ] [ --cygnus ] [ --foreign ] [ --gnits ] [ --gnu ] [ --help ] [ -i | --include-deps ] [ --no-force ] [ -o DIR ] [ --output-dir=DIR ] [ --srcdir-name=DIR ] [ -v | --verbose ] [ --version ]


To create all the Makefile.ins for a package, run the automake program in the top level directory, with no arguments. automake will automatically find each appropriate (by scanning and generate the corresponding Note that automake has a rather simplistic view of what constitutes a package; it assumes that a package has only one, at the top. If your package has multiple configure.ins, then you must run automake in each directory holding a

You can optionally give automake an argument; .am is appended to the argument and the result is used as the name of the input file. This feature is generally only used to automatically rebuild an out-of-date Note that automake must always be run from the topmost directory of a project, even if being used to regenerate the in some subdirectory. This is necessary because automake must scan, and because automake uses the knowledge that a is in a subdirectory to change its behavior in some cases.

automake accepts the following options:

Automake requires certain common files to exist in certain situations; for instance config.guess is required if runs AC_CANONICAL_HOST. Automake is distributed with several of these files; this option will cause the missing ones to be automatically added to the package, whenever possible. In general if Automake tells you a file is missing, try using this option.
Look for Automake data files in directory DIR instead of in the installation directory. This is typically used for debugging.
Tell Automake where the build directory is. This option is used when including dependencies into a generated by make dist; it should not be used otherwise.
When used with --add-missing, causes installed files to be copied. The default is to make a symbolic link.
Causes the generated Makefile.ins to follow Cygnus rules, instead of GNU or Gnits rules.
Set the global strictness to foreign.
Set the global strictness to gnits.
Set the global strictness to gnu. This is the default strictness.
Print a summary of the command line options and exit.
Include all automatically generated dependency information in the generated This is generally done when making a distribution.
Ordinarily automake creates all Makefile.ins mentioned in This option causes it to only update those Makefile.ins which are out of date with respect to one of their dependents.
-o DIR
Put the generated in the directory DIR. Ordinarily each is created in the directory of the corresponding This option is used when making distributions.
Tell Automake the name of the source directory associated with the current build. This option is used when including dependencies into a generated by makedist; it should not be used otherwise.
Cause Automake to print information about which files are being read or created.
Print the version number of Automake and exit.


aclocal(1), and the Texinfo documentation for automake


Automake was written primarily by David Mackenzie and Tom Tromey. This manpage written by Ben Pfaff <> for the Debian GNU/Linux automake package.
"Breadth. Circle. Desert. Monarch. Month. Wisdom. (for which there are
No rhymes)" was just the title, and I only read that far.

That was because I felt like some old agent-of-the-Czar
When a plotter swims within the scope of his exertions,
And I was scared this hothead would start hedging his assertions
Before I had him dead-to-rights. (A Chekan's or a SMERSHian's
Lot, you know, is not a happy one.) He might retract.

A liar is a liar is a liar. That's his act.
But six distinct demonstrable defiances-of-fact
Before he hits line one? That's taking aim at the World's Record.
I wanted this quark-colored tangerine-flake double-deckered
Omnibus of absurdities to make it to the checkered
Flag. He started fast, but could he forge on? Was he s e r i o u s?

He had the Grand Prix style all right. Intense. Composed. Imperious.
And lies to burn. Poor lies, in no wise deep or deleterious.
He drove them home like thumb (or rather tooth nail fist and chin) tacks.
He planted Cosmic Glints to make you whimper for a glint-axe.
"Unconstellated words rain down...inexorable syntax"
Etcetera Etcetera.

It's not that I'd set up,
Like Carrie Nation beating back the drunkard from his cup,
To scourge the world of liars. I'd as soon be Offissa Pup.
I'd sooner hassle fetishists and call myself a bra-narc.

If I were Lord of All (or even constitutional monarch)
I'd send a Deluge down, with one-way tickets on the Non-ark
For lying priests and pedagogues. They make a feller's fez hurt.
But whom does Keats's whopper about corpulent Cortez hurt?
Or any poet's whopper? If he wants to say the Desert
Is made of pea-green camambert, hell, welcome to the circle.

We listen to a Bard the way a certain kind of jerk'll
Listen to the leaves or listen to a percolator perkle.
As long as he can grind em out, a dozen-or-so a month,
We'll praise him to the nth degree, and to the n-plus-1th.
He could have called the thing "Fifth. Sixth. Eighth. Ninth. Twelfth.
Baker's dozenth"
For all we care. We'll cheer him to the w-x-y-zedth
As long as his flimflammeries have brio and have breadth
And don't come on like nursery-nannies pushing early to bedth
To three-year-olds with jingles about Health and Wealth and Wisdom.

He should look out though. He might take himself in, and that is dumb.

Do that, and sure as malheur is the better part of Msdom,
Sententiousness will sidle in with snapshots in his wallet
To lay a little something on us camels: some small strawlet
Of Wisdom, say, or Beauty. Take this poem now. I call it
"Width. Rhombus. (see Lozenge.) Glacier. Despot. Fortnight. Bilge."
I t o l d myself: "No overkill. Go easy on the bilge."
But then. T u e u r is human. And what rhymes with bilge is bilge.
