[Autogen-announce] GNU AutoGen Version 5.11.6/AutoOpts Version 34.0
by Bruce Korb


GNU AutoGen/AutoOpts is a two-part project that serves two separate
purposes.  The two parts are combined because they are inextricably

AutoGen is a tool designed to simplify the creation and maintenance of
programs that contain large amounts of repetitious text.  It is
especially valuable in programs that have several blocks of text that
must be kept synchronized.

AutoOpts is both an example of that and a project in its own right.
It is a very powerful configuration file, environment variable and
command line option management tool consisting of a set of AutoGen
templates and a run time library that nearly eliminates the hassle
of managing, parsing and documenting program options.

The self-referential example:

New in 5.11.6 - February, 2011

Here are the 'NEWS' entries since the last release

* Cope with Guile version number 2.0

* XML character encodings are parsed in config files, thus
  <opt-name>...<...</opt-name> yields "...<..."

* exit codes are enumerated for auto-opts projects
  They will appear in an enumeration in the header file and
  in generated documentation.

* program documentation templates have been improved.  See docs.

* packaging information
  The PKGDATADIR and --with-packager... information are now
  compiled into the option structure.  This makes it possible for
  config file searches to look in ${PKGDATADIR} by using "$@/"
  as the lead part of a "homerc" name.  e.g.
     homerc = "$@/config";
  will look for a file named "config" in that directory.
  "help" and "version" information will now include any
  --with-packager stuff.
