mm-common-prepare — Prepare a C++ binding module to use mm-common


mm-common-prepare [OPTION]... [SOURCE-DIR]


Run mm-common-prepare to install the mm-common build support files into the source tree of a C++ binding module. The exact location where these files will be installed can be influenced through special macros in the file.


The Automake include files are placed into the AUX-DIR subdirectory of the top-level source directory. If AC_CONFIG_AUX_DIR is not specified, the files are placed at the top-level of the module's source tree.


If the MM_CONFIG_DOCTOOL_DIR macro is called with an explicit DOCTOOL-DIR argument, the common utilities required for generating and installing the reference documentation of a C++ binding module will be installed into the named subdirectory. If MM_CONFIG_DOCTOOL_DIR is not used or does not specify a DOCTOOL-DIR argument, mm-common-prepare will not install the documentation utility files into the module's source tree. Instead, it is assumed that the module depends on glibmm and can use the installed documentation utilities that come with it.

If no SOURCE-DIR argument has been specified on the command line, the current working directory will be used.
