Summary:  AutoGen - The Automated Program Generator
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 can now accept XML files as definition input, in addition to CGI
data (for producing dynamic HTML) and traditional AutoGen definitions.

A common example where this would be useful is in creating and
maintaining the code required for processing program options. Processing
options requires multiple constructs to be maintained in parallel
in different places in your program. Options maintenance needs to be
done countless times. So, AutoGen comes with an add-on package named
AutoOpts that simplifies the maintenance and documentation of program
