Dear Jeff,
I read this comment . It is very interesting for me, I would like to add some Autotools capabilities in FoBiS. I know about your long experience in the field whereas my knowledge of Autotools is near zero. Can you point me to some good references about the right way to identify compilers and their features? For example, I am now trying to implement in FoBiS a simple feature that should check is a compiler support the iso_10646 character kind; my idea is to that FoBiS create on the fly a simple test, invoke selected_char_kind print the result and capture it in order to understand if the compiler support it. Is this the right way (similar to the autotools one)?

Thank you in advance.

My best regards.
