As a special service "Fossies" has tried to format the requested text file into HTML format (style: standard) with prefixed line numbers. Alternatively you can here view or download the uninterpreted source code file. See also the latest Fossies "Diffs" side-by-side code changes report for "README": 1.16.2_vs_1.16.3.

    1 This is Automake, a Makefile generator.  It aims to be portable and
    2 to conform to the GNU Coding Standards for Makefile variables and
    3 targets.
    4 
    5 See the INSTALL file for detailed information about how to configure
    6 and install Automake.
    7 
    8 Automake is a Perl script.  The input files are called Makefile.am.
    9 The output files are called Makefile.in; they are intended for use
   10 with Autoconf.  Automake requires certain things to be done in your
   11 configure.ac.
   12 
   13 Automake comes with extensive documentation; please refer to it for
   14 more details about its purpose, features, and usage patterns.
   15 
   16 This package also includes the "aclocal" program, whose purpose is
   17 to generate an 'aclocal.m4' based on the contents of 'configure.ac'.
   18 It is useful as an extensible, maintainable mechanism for augmenting
   19 autoconf.  It is intended that other package authors will write m4
   20 macros which can be automatically used by aclocal.  The documentation
   21 for aclocal is currently found in the Automake manual.
   22 
   23 Automake has a test suite.  Use "make check" to run it.  For more
   24 information, see the file t/README.
   25 
   26 Automake has a page on the web.  See:
   27 
   28 	https://www.gnu.org/software/automake/
   29 
   30 Automake also has three mailing lists:
   31 
   32   * automake@gnu.org
   33     For general discussions of Automake and its interactions with other
   34     configuration/portability tools like Autoconf or Libtool.
   35 
   36   * bug-automake@gnu.org
   37     Where to send bug reports and feature requests.
   38 
   39   * automake-patches@gnu.org
   40     Where to send patches, and discuss the automake development process
   41     and the design of new features.
   42 
   43 To obtain more information about these list, or to subscribe to them,
   44 refer to <https://www.gnu.org/software/automake/#mailinglists>
