New AutoGen Released

Normally, we would not post notices about new software releases. For those from the GNU project, you can see http://www.gnu.org/server/new-software.html for that information. But every now and then, there is a release of a piece of software that is noteworthy. AutoGen is one such because it isn't very well known, but provides some interesting features.


AutoGen in meant to provide the tools necessary for keeping different parts of a software project together when they relate to each other. One such example is command line arguments to a program. Information about which command line arguments can be used is often found in four different places; the program function that parses the options, the text displayed to the user when called with ``--help'', the manual page and the info documentation. To help this, AutoGen includes the tool AutoOpts which, from a template file containing definitions for the command line options generate C code to handle the options and a text suitable for inclusion in the manual page. If you're interested in the software, please visit their web page at http://www.gnu.org/software/autogen/autogen.html, and I'm sure that they would love to hear more about what uses people find for AutoGen.
