    Description: Eclipse Linux Tools: Autotools support for CDT

The Autotools suite of plugins add support to the CDT (C/C++ Development Tools) for building and maintaining C/C++ projects that use autotools. Using autotools is very common in the world of Open Source projects such as those hosted at http://www.gnu.org. With this additional support, a vast repository of C/C++ code can be checked out, built, and maintained under the CDT rather easily without having to resort to the command line.

In conjunction with the CDT, the plugin can do the following:

 * Build a C/C++ project that uses a configure script or an autogen script or a Makefile.cvs script
 * Create a simple C or C++ hello world Autotools project via a template
 * Allow configuration parameters to be set via a gui and to rebuild when configuration parameters are changed
 * Colorized editing of configuration files such as configure.in, configure.ac, Makefile.am, and Makefile.in
   with full hover help for autoconf/automake macros
 * Allow specification of multiple build configurations for a single project
 * Run autotools such as autoconf, automake, or aclocal directly using a gui interface
 * Help for autoconf and automake
