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 5.18.16 - August, 2018
NEWS entries since the last release:

Bootstrap and configure code has been revamped to work with the
new flavors of the autotools.

The distributed libopts "tear-off" library now includes the
_Noreturn "snippet" that it requires.

Guile 2.2 works like 2.0, so accept it, too.
