./configure files for linux
Hello everyone! I have ubuntu linux, and I am starting to develop software for it. I just wanted to know how the software on linux gets those fancy configure files to check if you ahve the right stuff installed and if so, were is it located. I know there is a tool called autoconf. I don't know if this will automate the process, but I just wanted to know, how can I automake the process of making a configure file?
