8.11 Objective C++ Support

Automake includes some support for Objective C++.

Any package including Objective C++ code must define the output variable OBJCXX in; the simplest way to do this is to use the AC_PROG_OBJCXX 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 OBJCXXFLAGS.


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.
