 2.2 Using `autoscan' to Create `'
 The `autoscan' program can help you create a `' file for a
 software package.  `autoscan' examines source files in the directory
 tree rooted at a directory given as a command line argument, or the
 current directory if none is given.  It searches the source files for
 common portability problems and creates a file `configure.scan' which
 is a preliminary `' for that package.
    You should manually examine `configure.scan' before renaming it to
 `'; it will probably need some adjustments.  Occasionally
 `autoscan' outputs a macro in the wrong order relative to another
 macro, so that `autoconf' produces a warning; you need to move such
 macros manually.  Also, if you want the package to use a configuration
 header file, you must add a call to `AC_CONFIG_HEADER' (
 Configuration Headers).  You might also have to change or add some
 `#if' directives to your program in order to make it work with Autoconf
 ( Invoking ifnames, for information about a program that can
 help with that job).
    `autoscan' uses several data files, which are installed along with
 the distributed Autoconf macro files, to determine which macros to
 output when it finds particular symbols in a package's source files.
 These files all have the same format.  Each line consists of a symbol,
 whitespace, and the Autoconf macro to output if that symbol is
 encountered.  Lines starting with `#' are comments.
    `autoscan' is only installed if you already have Perl installed.
 `autoscan' accepts the following options:
      Print a summary of the command line options and exit.
      Look for the data files in directory DIR instead of the default
      installation directory.  You can also set the `AC_MACRODIR'
      environment variable to a directory; this option overrides the
      environment variable.
      Print the names of the files it examines and the potentially
      interesting symbols it finds in them.  This output can be
      Print the version number of Autoconf and exit.
