Software News   Software News : m4-1.4.2 for classic AmigaOS (not using IXemul)
   posted by hnl_dk on 14-Sep-2004 14:08:18 (3283 reads)
m4-1.4.2 for classic AmigaOS. It is build using libnix, so it should be able to run on AmigaOS 4.x !

Build natively on WinUAE. Find it in the download section of my website.

m4 is a UNIX macro processor used by programs like: autoconf,automake & libtool.

Ahh ok... not being *nix head, I'd never heard of it... maybe it would be a good thing if that link was added to the news item?

Good work on the porting, anyway.

@nicomen

As far as I know... does the GNU websites not get updates that much...

m4-1.4.2 should be the newest stable version, but if not, lucky me (did the 1.4.1 port just before I saw that 1.4.2 was out there )

PS: Great thing about python How about Perl, do you know if there is a port for OS4? (need perl for autoconf, automake & libtool)

PPS: Will upload 1.4.1 when I get home from work

Perl for the OS4 would be nice.

I also would like to see PHP5 ported to m68k AmigaOS and OS4, anyone volunteer to port it ? There is PHP4 for the AmigaOS, but PHP5 should be much better (eg. object model is improved a lot)
