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 configuration file, environment variable and
command line option documentation and management tool consisting of a
set of AutoGen templates and a run time library that nearly eliminates
the hassle of managing, parsing and documenting program options.

The self-referential example:

There are several other examples embedded in AutoGen:
A finite state machine generator, string name to enumeration value
conversions, and bit map and bit mask management, to name a few.

New in 5.18.14 - July, 2018
NEWS entries since the last release:

* several configury fixes to enable cross platform building.
* completion of a change in "char-mapper" to enable bootstrapping
* Guile 1.8 support was removed
* Replace AG_SCM_STR02SCM with scm_from_latin1_string
  this breaks Guile 1.8.
* adaptations for cross compiling
* no more generating autoconf macros
* fix internal implementation of forking off autogen in xml2ag
* when calling abort() causes problems, exit() can now be
  called (via an option) instead.
* add support for nanosecond precision in file times
* suppress dumb warnings about embedded NUL bytes in formats.
