"m4" is the rather inscrutable name of a macro preprocessor. It is
available for the Cygwin system (or, at least, it was available when I
last installed Cygwin a couple of years ago) and I suggest that you go
looking for it at the Cygwin download site from where you installed your
Good luck. It can be non-trivial trying to install software which is
designed around the paradigm that "every operating system looks like
Unix". To forestall the inevitable protests, I'll state that it can be
non-trivial to work around the assumption that "everyone runs Windows".
I have personal experience in both camps and feel the pain of each.
