AutoOpts is an integrated part of AutoGen. Based on a very simple option description file, it will process configuration files, environment variables, command line options, text strings passed by client programs, and will make the results easily accessible to the client program. It will also produce a man page and the info-doc invoking section automatically.
Automatos provides tools for automated performance analysis, capacity planning, and real-time monitoring of services across multiple platforms (Linux, NT/2000/XP, AIX, Solaris, Tru64, and HP-UX). The performance analysis service assists in identification or prevention of problems with computers within a company's network. The capacity wizard provides hardware upgrade planning support, suggestions being based on current (or simulated) growth rate. Real-time monitoring allows users to remotely monitor their machines from either a Web or a WAP console, generating notifications based on user-defined thresholds. Automatos is a low-intrusion system that uses strong encryption and compresses data for optimal and minimum bandwidth usage. Reports are generated in PDF format in several different languages. Ad-hoc online report generation and customization is also available.
NFSv4 specifies that the RPC calls be batched into a "compound" call. There is no support for this in RPCGEN. By rearranging the ONC IDL for NFSv4 into AutoGen definitions, these templates will emit the original IDL *plus* all the code to package, send, distribute, collect, return, and dispatch the results. The distributed program author merely needs to call and supply server procedures for the routines specified in the IDL. Templates for these calls and service routines is provided, too. The NFSv4 definitions are included.
Automated Password Generator is a set of tools for random password generation including a standalone password generator, an RFC972 password generation server, and a Perl client for the password generation server. These feature a built-in X9.17 random number generator, and 35 modes of password generation, including pronounceable password generation.
Automake is a tool for automatically generating Makefiles compliant with the GNU Coding Standards. It was inspired by the 4.4BSD make and include files, but aims to be portable and to conform to the GNU standards for Makefile variables and targets. Automake is a Perl script. The input files are called Makefile.am. The output files are called Makefile.in; They are intended for use with Autoconf. Automake requires certain things to be done in your configure.in. This package also includes the "aclocal" program. aclocal is a program to generate an 'aclocal.m4' based on the contents of 'configure.in'. It is useful as an extensible, maintainable mechanism for augmenting autoconf.
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. Output is specified with a Scheme-enhanced output template. Input, if required by your template, may come from AutoGen definitions, CGI data, or XML files.
The Autofs CD Changer patch allows you to automount the different slots of a CD changer. It automatically changes the slots and remounts CDs as needed, giving the impression that they are all simultaneously mounted. It's not much use for multisession stuff, but works fine for mp3 lists that span many CDs.
autofs is a kernel-based automounter for Linux. It performs a job similar to amd but relies on a small stub of kernel code instead of pretending to be an NFS server. The result is simpler code, better reliability, and much faster operation in the common case (everything already mounted). Autofs 4 adds support for automounting trees of exported filesystems via /net.
