AutoGen is a tool designed for generating program files that contain repetitive text with varied substitutions. Its goal is to simplify the maintenance of programs that contain large amounts of repetitious text. This is especially valuable if there are several blocks of such text that must be kept synchronized.
The idea of this program is to to construct an output file by instantiating a template file that contains the general text of the desired output file. That template includes substitution expressions and sections of text that are replicated under the control of separate definition files.
