These tools are experimental and subject to breaking changes.
Autotools build helper is a wrapper around the command line invocation of autotools. It will abstract the
make into Python method calls.
Autotools helper can be used like:
from conans import conanfile from conan.tools.gnu import Autotools class App(ConanFile): settings = "os", "arch", "compiler", "build_type" def build(self): autotools = Autotools(self) autotools.configure() autotools.make()
The current support is limited: - It does not support cross-building or –target, –host, –build definitions - It does not handle install functionality
