All the components of PyMakeMeLazyNDumb are based upon it heavily. This module is slightly different in v0.0.2 from v0.0.1 regarding a small fix. is a python app that creates various files having .c, .h, .cpp, .hpp, .java, .py, .pl, .rb, .lua, .php, .sh, .mak, .sql extensions with appropriate commented information headers. Some of the generic fields of the commented info headers are filled automatically. So use this simple but effective app next time when you want to generate files you or others could track later on.

This version of the app also supports the info header append feature to the existing files having the extensions supported by the app. For example – if you want to generate example1.c,, example.sql files in your home directory then the command to type is :

python -d ~ example1.c example3.sql

If you want to append an info header to an already existing file then the command to type is :

python -a example4.mak

To see the usages of the app, the command is :

python -h

The app backs up existing files both in creation and append modes with extension .bak.timestamp .This app logs all the warning and error messages in a log file named activity.log in the directory from where is run. Once this log file is created, all the subsequent warnings and errors are appended to it.
