AUTOTOOLS JOHN CALCOTE PDF

You probably know how I feel about Autotools books given I actually wanted to write one, was mostly rejected, and ended up working on spare time on Autotools Mythbuster — which I really should write more on. At any rate, No Starch Press has been tremendously kind and offered me a review copy — I did contact them to propose my guide as a book, and they did tell me they had a book already in the works.. I actually hoped to post the review much sooner, but between job tasks, and Gentoo messes, time was a rare commodity. And to be honest, it felt a lot like reading a textbook when you know already the subject. For instance, he goes into two important topics that I have only written about in the blog up until now — Position Independent Code and library versioning — and then provides a whole chapter dedicated to tip and tricks, not only tied to Autotools.

Although the Autotools are used by thousands of open source software packages, they have a notoriously steep learning curve. Autotools is the first book to offer programmers a tutorial-based guide to the GNU build system. Author John Calcote begins with an overview of high-level concepts and a hands-on tour of the philosophy and design of the Autotools. He then tackles more advanced details, like using the M4 macro processor with Autoconf, extending the framework provided by Automake, and building Java and C sources.

He concludes with solutions to frequent problems encountered by Autotools users. This thoroughly revised second edition has been updated to cover the latest versions of the Autotools.

It includes five new chapters on topics like pkg-config, unit and integration testing with Autotest, internationalizing with GNU tools, the portability of gnulib, and using the Autotools with Windows. As with the first edition, you'll focus on two projects: Jupiter, a simple "Hello, world!

Follow along as the author takes Jupiter's build system from a basic makefile to a full-fledged Autotools project, and then as he converts the FLAIM projects from complex, hand-coded makefiles to the powerful and flexible GNU build system.
