AUTOM4TE(1)				  User Commands 			      AUTOM4TE(1)

NAME
       autom4te - Generate files and scripts thanks to M4

SYNOPSIS
       autom4te [OPTION] ... [FILES]

DESCRIPTION
       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

       --no-cache
	      disable the cache

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