As Rafael mentioned last year, the fortran wrapper library, libplf77 was
easily split from libplplot in AM-LT, and I am continuing that with AT (with
a hierarchichal linking fix which I have just committed). Furthermore, with
this scheme, the fortran apps only need to link with the fortran wrapper
library, libplf77. (See the installed examples/f77/Makefile.examples.)
The fortran examples built by
cd $prefix/lib/plplot-5.1.0/examples/f77; make -f Makefile.examples
execute without problems.
So essentially at the press of an (autotools) button we get what Maurice and
I have wanted for years.
To keep some balance here, I must emphasize that there is bound to be
glitches when you first try AT because I just cannot do as extensive testing
as the combination of the rest of the developers. Furthermore, AT is a
paradigm shift from the old way of configuring our package so that is bound
to produce some irritation and frustration at the new way of doing things.
However, I am having a lot of trouble keeping unbiased here as everything
I tackle seems to fall into place. I think you will like AT as well once
you try it....;-)
