About: AutoGen is an automated text file generator to simplify the creation and maintenance of programs that contain large amounts of repetitious text (for e.g. for options processing).

Autogen is a multi-component project. There is the basic engine itself ("autogen"), a library ("libopts") and its support templates (collectively, "AutoOpts"), several support and utility programs ("columns", "getdefs" and "xml2ag"), plus several handy embedded utility templates. They are all bundled together because they all require each other. They each do completely separate things, but they each are not useful without the other. Thus, they are bundled together.
