About

A Configure script is an executable script used when installing programs from source. It will check for the presence of the necessary tools and libraries on the target computer and generate a Makefile which is then used to compile the source code.

Configure scripts are usually named configure and written for the bourne shell but they could in principle be written in any scripting language.

For questions related to configuration of Ubuntu software use the configuration tag.
