autom4te - Generate files and scripts thanks to M4


   autom4te [OPTION]... [FILES]


   Run  GNU  M4 on the FILES, avoiding useless runs.  Output the traces if
   tracing, the frozen file if freezing, otherwise the  expansion  of  the

   If  some of the FILES are named `FILE.m4f' they are considered to be M4
   frozen files of  all  the  previous  files  (which  are  therefore  not
   loaded).   If  `FILE.m4f'  is  not  found, then `FILE.m4' will be used,
   together with all the previous files.

   Some files may be optional, i.e., will only be processed  if  found  in
   the  include  path,  but then must end in `.m4?';  the question mark is
   not part of the actual file name.

   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

   -o, --output=FILE
          save output in FILE (defaults to `-', stdout)

   -f, --force
          don't rely on cached values

   -W, --warnings=CATEGORY
          report the warnings falling in CATEGORY

   -l, --language=LANG
          specify the set of M4 macros to use

   -C, --cache=DIRECTORY
          preserve results for future runs in DIRECTORY

          disable the cache

   -m, --mode=OCTAL
          change the non trace output file mode (0666)

   -M, --melt
          don't use M4 frozen files

   Languages include:
          create Autoconf configure scripts

          create Autotest test suites

   `M4sh' create M4sh shell scripts

          create M4sugar output

   Warning categories include:
          cross compilation issues

   `gnu'  GNU coding standards (default in gnu and gnits modes)

          obsolete features or constructions

          user redefinitions of Automake rules or variables

          portability issues (default in gnu and gnits modes)

          dubious syntactic constructs (default)

          unsupported or incomplete features (default)

   `all'  all the warnings

          turn off warnings in CATEGORY

   `none' turn off all the warnings

          treat warnings as errors

   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

   -t, --trace=MACRO[:FORMAT]
          report the MACRO invocations

   -p, --preselect=MACRO
          prepare to trace MACRO in a future run

   -F, --freeze
          produce an M4 frozen state file for FILES

   FORMAT defaults to `$f:$l:$n:$%', and can use the following escapes:
   $$     literal $

   $f     file where macro was called

   $l     line where macro was called

   $d     nesting depth of macro call

   $n     name of the macro

   $NUM   argument NUM, unquoted and with newlines

   $SEP@  all arguments, with newlines, quoted, and separated by SEP

   $SEP*  all arguments, with newlines, unquoted, and separated by SEP

   $SEP%  all arguments, without newlines, unquoted, and separated by SEP

   SEP can be empty for the default (comma for @ and *, colon  for  %),  a
   single character for that character, or {STRING} to use a string.
