The directory ‘/gd/gnuorg’ mentioned throughout this document is available on the general GNU server, currently fencepost.gnu.org. If you are the maintainer of a GNU package, you should have an account there. If you don’t have one already, http://www.gnu.org/software/README.accounts.html. You can also ask for accounts for people who significantly help you in working on the package. 继续阅读 “Information for Maintainers of GNU Software Notes”

1 Introduction

Automake is a tool for automatically generating Makefile.ins from files called Makefile.am. Each Makefile.am is basically a series of make variable definitions1, with rules being thrown in occasionally. The generated Makefile.ins are compliant with the GNU Makefile standards.

The typical Automake input file is simply a series of variable definitions. Each such file is processed to create a Makefile.in. There should generally be one Makefile.am per directory of a project.

Automake does constrain a project in certain ways; for instance, it assumes that the project uses Autoconf (see Introduction), and enforces certain restrictions on the configure.ac contents2. 继续阅读 “GNU Automake Notes”

  1. 介绍

A physicist, an engineer, and a computer scientist were discussing the 
nature of God. Surely a Physicist, said the physicist, because 
early in the Creation, God made Light; and you know, Maxwell's equations, 
the dual nature of electro-magnetic waves, the relativist consequences... 
An Engineer!, said the engineer, because before making Light,
 God split the Chaos into Land and Water; it takes a hell of 
an engineer to handle that bigamount of mud, and orderly 
separation of solids from liquids... The computer scientist 
shouted: And the Chaos, where do you think it was coming from, hmm?
