%%name: Autogen

%%short-description: Automated program and text generation

%%full-description: Autogen is a tool designed for generating program
files that contain repetitive text with varied substitutions. its
goal is to simplify the maintenance of programs that have large
amounts of repetitive text. This is particularly valuable
if there are several blocks of such text that must be kept
synchronized. The follwing programs and libraries are also included:

<P>AutoOpts- This is a link library that can be redistributed with any
project.  It completely automates the process of parsing command line
options, configuration files, environment variables, usage text, man
pages, and the invoking section of an info doc. It currently produces
option processing code for C, C++, Guile inner-main programs and shell

<P>AutoFSM- Where it is possible to determine a state transition type
(token code) largely without reference to the current state, this
template will produce a transition table and prototype finite state
machine. If you must know current state to determine the transition
type, this is not useful.

<P>getdefs- Extracts AutoGen definitions from stylized commentes
embedded in source code.

<P>columns- tabularizes lists for improved output appearance.
See also ls(1).

<P>AutoXDR- is an affiliated download.
NFSv4 specifies that its remote procedure calls be batched. Using
an enhanced XDR specification and the AutoXDR templates, AutoGen
generates all the grunge code for marshalling and unmarshalling
the arguments on both sides of the RPC request.
