[Autogen-announce] GNU AutoGen Version 5.13/AutoOpts Version 36.0
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 5.13 - December, 2011

Here are the 'NEWS' entries since the last release

* Several more changes to keep Guile from "fixing" (breaking) strings.

* AutoOpts now uses string tables instead of individual static char const's.
   Consequently, there are many fewer load time fixups required.

* AutoOpts now supports vendor-opt attribute to auto-implement the "-W"
   option for POSIX specified utilities

* fiddle man page generation to facilitate mdoc man pages.
