A software project often contains some dull and repetitive tasks. Let’s take program options of any kind for an example, e.g. a command line interface. For every program option you need to write a boiler plate code fragment. Additionally every single program option has to be documented. Now that’s somewhat boring. You can easily gather all options in a spreadsheet including any documentation. Wouldn’t it be good to simply generate code and user documentation from the spreadsheet table data? Here is where the code-creation-kit comes in. The code-creation-kit mainly consists of a text compiler that can be used to generate code for any text based programming language for any coding problem that involves a lot of repetition. The input of the text compiler is modeled in table and template files. Powerful multistage macro expressions in the template files control how the data from the data tables is converted into code. Documentation and examples show in more detail how this works.
