3.4.8 ‘dne’ - "Do Not Edit" warning

Usage: (dne prefix [ first_prefix ] [ optpfx ])
Generate a "DO NOT EDIT" or "EDIT WITH CARE" warning string. Which depends on whether or not the --writable command line option was set.

The first argument may be an option: -d

This will suppress the variable text (date and version information). If specified, then the "prefix" and "first" arguments are shifted to the next arguments.

The first argument is a per-line string prefix. The optional second argument is a prefix for the first-line and, in read-only mode, activates the editor hints.

-*- buffer-read-only: t -*- vi: set ro:

The warning string also includes information about the template used to construct the file and the definitions used in its instantiation.

The optional third argument is used when the first argument is actually an invocation option and the prefix arguments get shifted. The first argument must be, specifically, "-d". That is used to signify that the date stamp should not be inserted into the output.

prefix - string for starting each output line
first_prefix - Optional - for the first output line
optpfx - Optional - shifted prefix
