GNU AutoGen Version 5.7.3/AutoOpts Version 26.0

GNU AutoGen/AutoOpts is a two-part project that serves two separate
purposes and are inextricably intertwined:

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

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

New in 5.7.3 - October, 2005

* Definition and license text files were mmap-ed in without checking for
  the size being a multiple of a page.  strlen() would seg fault.
* disable autoopts/test/getopt.test unless autoopts has been fully installed.
  (It requires getopt.tpl which requires a fully installed environment.)
* several other usability improvements to the tear off library.
