8.2 Using `autom4te'
====================

The Autoconf suite, including M4sugar, M4sh, and Autotest, in addition
to Autoconf per se, heavily rely on M4.  All these different uses
revealed common needs factored into a layer over M4: `autom4te'(1).

   `autom4te' is a preprocessor that is like `m4'.  It supports M4
extensions designed for use in tools like Autoconf.
