8.10 Objective C Support

Automake includes some support for Objective C.

Any package including Objective C code must define the output variable OBJC in; the simplest way to do this is to use the AC_PROG_OBJC macro (see Particular Program Checks in The Autoconf Manual).

A few additional variables are defined when an Objective C source file is seen:


The name of the Objective C compiler.


Any flags to pass to the Objective C compiler.


The maintainer’s variant of OBJCFLAGS.


The command used to actually compile an Objective C source file. The file name is appended to form the complete command line.

The command used to actually link an Objective C program.
