New is a template system, especially useful in conjunction with a simple text editor such as vi. The user maintains templates which may contain format strings. At run time, nf replaces the format strings in a template with appropriate values to create a new file.

For example, given the following template:


Copyright (C) 1999 %(FULLNAME) %(EMAIL) All rights reserved.

nf will create:

FILE: foo.cpp AUTHOR: W. Michael Petullo DATE: 11 September 1999

Copyright (C) 1999 W. Michael Petullo new@… All rights reserved.

on my computer.

The program understands plaintext or gziped template files.

The fmt-ptrn system also provides a shared library which allows a programmer access to nf's functionality. The system was developed to be light and fast. Its only external dependencies are the C library, glib2 and zlib.

This needs glib2 installed for running, and uses pkg-config to find it right? If so it'll need a depends_build for pkgconfig and depends_lib for glib2.
