       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 FILES.

       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.

   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

       -o, --output=FILE
	      save output in FILE (defaults to `-', stdout)

       -f, --force
	      don't rely on cached values

       -W, --warnings=CATEGORY
	      report the warnings falling in CATEGORY

       -l, --language=LANG
	      specify the set of M4 macros to use

       -C, --cache=DIRECTORY
	      preserve results for future runs in DIRECTORY

	      disable the cache

       -m, --mode=OCTAL
	      change the non trace output file mode (0666)

       -M, --melt
	      don't use M4 frozen files

   Languages include:
	      create Autoconf configure scripts

	      create Autotest test suites

       `M4sh' create M4sh shell scripts

	      obsolete features or constructions

	      user redefinitions of Automake rules or variables

	      portability issues

	      dubious syntactic constructs (default)

	      unsupported or incomplete features (default)

       `all'  all the warnings

	      turn off warnings in CATEGORY

       `none' turn off all the warnings

	      treat warnings as errors

       The environment variable `WARNINGS' is honored.

   Library directories:
       -B, --prepend-include=DIR
	      prepend directory DIR to search path

       -I, --include=DIR
	      append directory DIR to search path

       -t, --trace=MACRO
	      report the MACRO invocations

       -p, --preselect=MACRO
	      prepare to trace MACRO in a future run

       -F, --freeze
