What is an .AM file?

.AM is Automake Makefile Template

File used by Automake, a program used for generating Makefiles; contains a Makefile template, which includes the information required to generate valid Makefile syntax; helps programmers define a Makefile using a higher-order language instead of having to write low-level Makefile syntax.

NOTE: A Makefile declares how to compile and link a program and is run using the Unix make command. Makefiles have the filename Makefile.
