       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.

       $$     literal $

       $f     file where macro was called

       $l     line where macro was called

       $d     nesting depth of macro call

       $n     name of the macro
