automake Linux Command


automake [options] [template_file]
GNU automake tool. Create GNU standards-compliant Makefile.in files from Makefile.am template files and can be used to ensure that projects contain all the files and install options required to be standards-compliant. Note that Versions 1.4 and 1.6 differ enough that many distributions include an automake14 package for backward compatibility.


-a, --add-missing
Add any missing files that automake requires to the directory by creating symbolic links to automake's default versions.

Specifies project has a Cygnus-style source tree.

-f, --force-missing
Used with the -a option. Replace required files even if a local copy already exists.

Treat project as a non-GNU project. Check only for elements required for proper operation.
