|Description:||Automated text generation from templates (5.18.2-2)|
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. AutoGen includes several modules for specific applications, including a command line option parser, an FSM generator, a generator for autoconf macros and others.
The AutoGen package is composed of one main program (autogen) and several helpers. The autogen command takes as input a text file containing structured information (the AutoGen definition) and a template containing instructions for turning the structured input into formatted output. The columns command generates columnized tables from its input. The getdefs command extracts an AutoGen definition from source files. The development package includes a couple of useful libraries: the options library for simplifying the task of managing a program's command line options, and the snprintvf library for generating safe printf-style output from argv-style arguments. See the man or info pages (autogen, snprintfv) for more usage information.
