Carcass — Define and generate file and directory carcasses


carcass /ˈkɑːkəs/ the structural framework of a building, ship, or piece of furniture — Oxford Dictionary of English

Carcass is a command line tool and OCaml library to define and generate file and directory structures.

The primary aim of Carcass is to help programmers to quickly setup new software projects and deal with source and licensing boilerplate during program development. Carcass is agnostic to content.

Carcass is distributed under the ISC license.

Carcass is extensively documented in man pages available through it's help system. Type:

The library documentation and API reference is automatically generated by ocamldoc from the interfacdes. It can be consulted online and there is a generated version in the doc directory of the distribution.
