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 documentation and 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:

NOTE: sometime "pretty soon", tar.gz files will not be distributed.

New in 5.15 - February, 2012
NEWS entries since the last release:

* aliasing options was only partially implemented.  Finished now.

* Generated texi documentation missed the new doc-section stanzas.

* compile issue on non-mmap platforms was fixed

* bug in usage error display was fixed
