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 command line option parser consisting of a set
of AutoGen templates and a run time library that nearly eliminates
the hassle of managing, parsing and documenting program options.

New in 5.9.3 - October, 2007

Here are the 'NEWS' entries since the last release

* libopts requires strsignal, so the config test has been moved.
* fixed ``--save'' option bug
* programs may now choose to have config files kept in cannonical form
  ("C" locale), even if long option names are translated.  The option
  definition file must contain ``no-xlate = opt-cfg;'' or
  ``no-xlate = opt;''  See the documentation for details.
