Poor man’s code generator

A short time ago, I wanted to find a simple code generator that would run on Windows for helping me to maintain hand-rolled SPICE models files. I was a bit surprised to find none that were no-brainers to install or use. However, I did figure out that OpenOffice‘s mail merge feature can be used as a poor-man’s code generator. There’s more than one way to do it, but the process described at Worldlabel.com is the most straightforward for my brain. The key is to “print out” to several files or a single file–depending on what you are generating.
