AC_PROG_JAVADOC tests for an existing javadoc generator. It uses the environment
variable JAVADOC then tests in sequence various common javadoc generator.
If you want to force a specific compiler:
- at the configure.in level, set JAVADOC=yourgenerator before calling
- at the configure level, setenv JAVADOC
You can use the JAVADOC variable in your Makefile.in, with @JAVADOC@.
Note: This macro depends on the autoconf M4 macros for Java programs.
It is VERY IMPORTANT that you download that whole set, some
macros depend on other. Unfortunately, the autoconf archive does not
support the concept of set of macros, so I had to break it for
The general documentation of those macros, as well as the sample
configure.in, is included in the AC_PROG_JAVA macro.
