What is GENER8?

GENER8 is perfect for generating repetitive text in lots of files, or versions of one file. There are special features for generating HTML, but you can use it to generate any kind of text. GENER8 includes a flexible macro processor, conditionals with full logic and arithmetic processing, and links to system calls so that you can extend its abilities. GENER8 runs on the command line, using the free GNU AWK program. GNU AWK, and therefore GENER8, can run on many operating systems, including Windows and Linux.

Full documentation is in the GENER8 Scripting Manual.

How do I get GENER8?

Download the program and documentation as a 69 KB ZIP file. After downloading, unzip the file in any convenient directory and read the 0readme.1st file.

Need an unzip program? I use and recommend 7-Zip (freeware, open source) for Windows. It also includes a command-line version.

Installation instructions are here.
