Appendix C. Further Readings

While the goal of this guide is to provide a comprehensive and extensive documentation on autotools and all tools related to them, it will take a long time before it can be said to be self-sufficient.

Until that time, I'd like to point out some further readings that will provide pointers, or reference material, that can be useful to those of you interested in working with autotools.

Some of the material (most at the time I'm writing this) is actually content I have written for various different targets, and that is available online already. If compatible with the goal of this guide and the license of the published content, it will be merged in this guide, in due time.
