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:

There are several other examples embedded in AutoGen:
A finite state machine generator, string name to enumeration value
conversions, and bit map and bit mask management, to name a few.

New in 5.18.5 - May, 2015
NEWS entries since the last release:

* Guile 1.6 is now obsolete.  1.7/8 or newer from now on.
  Fixed issues with Guile managed locale string processing.
* more Guile-config somersaults
  config/misc.def: sometimes, "pkg-config --cflags-only-I" yields
  multiple directories for Guile and that incantation is the only
  way to find libguile/version.h and that header is the only way
  to determine the micro version and the micro version is the best
  way to check for certain types of breakage.  (Testing is too
* for-each handler functions may now be able to free (or not)
  the file text via the "handler-frees" attribute.
