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 5.10.1 - March, 2010

Here are the 'NEWS' entries since the last release

* The "libguile" stuff has been removed.  I stopped using it and
  nobody else can have been using it.  It's gone.

* Fixed a seg fault that happens on some platforms after processing completes.

* Augmented the Finite State Machine templates to #include
  hand crafted callout code in addition to extracting from
  earlier revisions.

* autogen now uses unlocked io where feasible.
