Config Maker 0.007 Description

Config Maker 0.007 is considered as a smart as well as professional perl program, that generates text files from templates and configuration values. It is useful to keep all configuration in one place and configure many different services from that. I wrote it and use it for generating firewall configuration, DNS zone file and dhcp server config for a small network. 

The idea is a combination of Embperl and XSLT, except it's not that heavyweight. The template is copied to the output, while substituting directives with respective values from the configuration. The values are refered with paths, that are similar to XPath, but a bit less featurefull.

The program is normaly invoked via the configit script. It takes a metaconfig as an argument, which governs all the generation. In the metaconfig, a list of configuration sources (files) is given and for each a list of templates that should be instantiated (also files) are given. Result of expanding a template can be saved to a file, piped to a command, or possibly both. If an error is encountered anywhere during the processing, the results are not installed so the previous configuration is not broken. For details refer to configit. 

There is one additional auxiliary script, run-and-save. It is useful if you generate a script, that shall be run on another machine. Just install the run-and-save script on the target machine and specify ssh machine run-and-save --act I as a command for given template. This script installs your script as target-script-name and executes it. Don't forget to end your template with #COMMIT to indicate that whole script was transfered. The run-and-save script can also take the name from first line of input.
