Programming is the act of automating the use of complexity that is made up
of simpler things. Done so that such complexity is easier to use. As such
the complexity of programming itself can be automated.

There is something of an inherent resistance to the project by those who
would feel threatened by such a tool.

The project I present is a tool that allows easier automation. It's more a
general automation tool than specific to autocoding, but inherently it
can be used to create an auocoding environment that even the typical user
could use.

It amounts to what would be a small shell and/or library containing nine
commands w/command options. It's really quite logical as it makes use of
existing integrated documentation/example code of what is in the format of
typical unix command, library quick reference, etc, manual pages. But can
handle alot more.
