acr — autoconf replacement


acr [-dDehmnprvwx] [-o file] [file | args]


ACR tries to replace the autoconf functionality generating a full compatible "configure" script. The main difference is that ACR uses shell script instead of m4, and final generated script looks smaller, faster, easy to read and maintain. There's a new concept that consists on adding simple rules. And trying to skip all program‐ ming and non-portable stuff. That breaks standarization of software packages. -d --debug Runs ACR in debug mode. This will show a branch tree for all command calls, allowing the developer to see if the target script is parsed properly. -D --dist Scans current project directory, resets to the initial state and creates a distname tarball 'pkgname-version.tar.gz'. -e --embed Embeds configure.acr into the final configure script. -h --help Show the usage message to the console. -m --makefile Creates a sample "Makefile.acr" using configure.acr file. -n --do-nothing Do not create the final configure script. -o --output [file] Generate the configure script into a different filename. -p --progress-bar Show progress bar. -r Recovery mode. See acr-cat(1) for more information. -s Strip default code generation, this is flag parsing and system checks. -v ---version Show version information. -w ---word -[number] Cats the 'configure.acr' file and colorizes the desired word number. -x --exec Generates and executes the configure.acr directly without creating the "configure" file. You can also pass the cmdline flags like --prefix, etc.
