NAME

       autoconf2.13 - creates scripts to configure source code packages using templates

SYNOPSIS

       autoconf2.13  [  --help  |  -h ] [ --localdir=dir | -l dir ] [ --macrodir=dir | -m dir ] [
       --version ]

DESCRIPTION

       To create configure from configure.in, run the autoconf2.13  program  with  no  arguments.
       autoconf2.13  processes  configure.in  with  the  m4  macro  processor, using the Autoconf
       macros.  If you give autoconf2.13 an argument, it reads that file instead of  configure.in
       and  writes  the  configuration script to the standard output instead of to configure.  If
       you give autoconf2.13 the argument -, it reads the standard input instead of  configure.in
       and writes the configuration script on the standard output.

       The  Autoconf macros are defined in several files.  Some of the files are distributed with
       Autoconf; autoconf2.13 reads them first.  Then it looks for the optional file acsite.m4 in
       the  directory  that  contains  the distributed Autoconf macro files, and for the optional
       file aclocal.m4 in the current directory.  Those files can  contain  your  site's  or  the
       package's  own  Autoconf macro definitions.  If a macro is defined in more than one of the
       files that autoconf2.13 reads, the last definition it reads overrides the earlier ones.

       autoconf2.13 accepts the following options:

       --help

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

       --localdir=DIR

       -l DIR Look for the package file aclocal.m4 in directory DIR instead  of  in  the  current
              directory.

       --macrodir=DIR

       -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.

       --version
              Print the version number of Autoconf and exit.
