Tools for developing, maintaining and distributing software.

The dist package is a set of tools meant to ease the construction and maintenance of portable software.

The first component is the Configure script generator, metaconfig, which automatically builds the Configure script from your sources. Ideally, the end-user receiving your source code will simply have to read your README file, run the Configure script (which is self-documented), and then run make.

The second component is the Makefile.SH generator, which is a generic configured Makefile, reusing some of the information figured out by Configure, and a generic Jmakefile description.

The third component is the RCS aware package generator, which is used when it's time to build up the shell archives used to distribute your program.

The fourth and latest component is the patch generator, used to make updates of your sources, which can later be applied on the original distribution by using the patch program.

This is the root directory for jmake.

The jmake program is a Makefile generator. It comes from 'imake' one
may find in the X11R4 distribution, but it produces a Makefile.SH
instead of a Makefile. Jmake has a template which knows some metaconfig
symbols and has built-in commands which make it more powerful than imake.

The jmkmf script may be used to produce the Makefile.SH from a Jmakefile.
