Creates a skeleton source package for a new program
Autoproject interviews the user, then creates a source package for a new program, following the GNU programming standards. The new package uses autoconf to configure itself, and automake to create the Makefile. Optionally, the new package will use argp (from glibc) or a command line parser generator (AutoOpts).
The idea is that you execute autoproject just once when you start a new project. It will ask a few questions, then create a new directory and populate it with standard files, customized for the new project.
