Headerguard - Add header guards to C/C++ header files

It is a common practice to insert header guards into C/C++ header files to allow a header to be included multiple times. A header guard for file HeaderName.h typically looks something like this:


  ...header content...

#endif /* HEADERNAME_H */

Headerguard provides methods for inserting and updating header guards, and for tailoring the header guard style to fit local conventions. It checks for a pre-existing header guard, and if found, modifies the existing guard in-place.

See documentation in doc/headerguard.txt for installation, customization, and usage instructions.
