Up: mfmodnew   [Contents][Index] mfmodnew invocation

The mfmodnew is invoked as:

mfmodnew [options] modname [dir]

where modname is the name of the new module and dir is the directory where to store the module infrastructure files. Normally you would omit dir altogether: in this case the utility will use mfmod_modname as the directory name.

Options are:

-C dir

Search for template files in dir, instead of the default location.

-e email

Supply the author’s email. The email is passed as argument to the AC_INIT macro in configure.ac. By default it is constructed as ‘username@hostname’. If it is incorrect, you can either edit configure.ac afterwards, or just supply the correct one using this option.
