autoreconf Linux Commands

What is Linux autoreconf Command?


autoreconf COMMAND:

autoreconf - Update generated configuration files
Run 'autoreconf' repeatedly to remake the GNU Build System files in the DIRECTORIES or the directory trees driven by CONFIG-URE-AC.
By default, it only remakes those files that are older than their predecessors. If you install new versions of the GNU Build System, running 'autoreconf' remakes all of the files by giving it the '--force' option.


autoreconf [OPTION] ... [CONFIGURE-AC or DIRECTORY] ...


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.
-f, --force consider all files obsolete.
-i, --install copy missing auxiliary files.
-s,--symlink with -i, install symbolic links instead of copies
-m, --make when applicable, re-run ./configure && make
-W,--warnings=CATEGORY report the warnings falling in CATEGORY [syntax]

Warning categories include:
'cross' cross compilation issues
'gnu' GNU coding standards (default in gnu and gnits modes).
'obsolete' obsolete features or constructions
'override' user redefinitions of Automake rules or variables
'portability' portability issues
'syntax' dubious syntactic constructs (default).


autoreconf --force --install -I config -I m4
