Automake

Just yesterday while I was working on a project I discovered the joys of autoconf/automake. I never realized exactly how the ./configure andand make worked. I tried looking at the configure script before I never understood how everybody could create such a complicated script even for simple programs. They all seemed to do about the same thing, and I just assumed that it was created by an ide or something that I didn’t have. Anyway now that I know how to use it I really enjoy it. It makes making makefiles much easier. I’ll have to teach Chris how to use them. He’s created simple scripts to create Makefiles before. Maybe we can put it into the game we are supposed to work on. (if he ever gets his subversion server running) I’m going to have to email him and get back in touch. Anyway I guess I’m going to get back to my project. Talk to you later.
