This package browser is in early development. Mind the rough edges.

autoconf

Create source code configuration scripts

Autoconf offers the developer a robust set of M4 macros which expand into shell code to test the features of Unix-like systems and to adapt automatically their software package to these systems. The resulting shell scripts are self-contained and portable, freeing the user from needing to know anything about Autoconf or M4.

Installation

Install the latest version of autoconf as follows:

guix install autoconf

Or install a particular version:

guix install autoconf@2.13

You can also install packages in augmented, pure or containerized environments for development or simply to try them out without polluting your user profile. See the guix shell documentation for more information.
