autom4te [OPTION] ... [FILES]
Run GNU M4 on the FILES, avoiding useless runs. Output the traces if
tracing, the frozen file if freezing, otherwise the expansion of the
If some of the FILES are named `FILE.m4f' they are considered to be M4
frozen files of all the previous files (which are therefore not
loaded). If `FILE.m4f' is not found, then `FILE.m4' will be used,
together with all the previous files.
Some files may be optional, i.e., will only be processed if found in
the include path, but then must end in `.m4?'; the question mark is
not part of the actual file name.
