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 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 5.9.7 - December, 2008

Here are the 'NEWS' entries since the last release

* several cleanups.

* "more-help" is only supported with libopts in use at run time.
  Allow for it to be expunged from the documentation.
  AutoOpts for getopt(3C) works more consistently now.

* Add a #define for the configured shell to config.h

* add --used-defines to autogen.  You can now find out all the names
  that autogen looked up during processing.  That will include computed
  names and values passed to macros by name and it won't include names
  only referenced in sections of a template that were not processed.
  But it helps in documenting a template anyway.  (I needed it!)
