Software News   Software News : GNU m4-1.4.4 ported on and to AmigaOS4
   posted by hnl_dk on 21-Dec-2005 19:25:08 (2447 reads)
GNU `m4' is an implementation of the traditional Unix macro
processor. It is mostly SVR4 compatible, although it has some
extensions (for example, handling more than 9 positional parameters
to macros). `m4' also has built-in functions for including files,
running shell commands, doing arithmetic, etc. Autoconf needs GNU
`m4' for generating `configure' scripts, but not for running them.

For more information about m4 itself, read the README file included in the archive, or look at this website: http://www.gnu.org/software/m4/



It has been configured and built directly on AmigaOS4

Download the sourcecode here:
ftp://ftp.gnu.org/pub/gnu/m4/m4-1.4.4.tar.bz2

Configured using abc-shell 0.0.36 directly on AmigaOS4:
./configure LIBS='-lm -lunix' prefix='/SDK/local' CFLAGS='-mcrt=clib2 -g -O2'

There have been no changes to the sourcecode.

Best regards,
hnl_dk - Henning Nielsen Lund

@hnl_dk

I can see what is happening here; you're building the building blocks!

Nice work!

Yup

After christmas I hope to be able to release a altered version of libtool, so we can make configure scripts, that are able to make use of a2solib, so we can make shared libraries the easy way (even more easy that now )...

And I also have some other project in mind

It would be great to have a combined porting site and mailinglist for OS4...

@hnl_dk

Cool. Keep the news posted here and I'll download them to integrate in an hypotetical new SDK.

Thanks.
