./wip/p5-Getopt-GUI-Long, Wrapper around Getopt::Long

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 0.91, Package name: p5-Getopt-GUI-Long-0.91, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

This module is a wrapper around Getopt::Long that extends the value of
the original Getopt::Long module to:

1) add a simple graphical user interface option screen if no arguments
are passed to the program.
2) provide an auto-help mechanism such that -h and --help are handled
automatically.

It's designed to make the creation of graphical shells trivial without the
programmer having to think about it much as well as providing automatic
good-looking usage output without the programmer needing to write usage()
functions.

This also can turn normal command line programs into web CGI scripts as
well (automatically). If the Getopt::GUI::Long program is installed as a
CGI script then it will automatically prompt the user for the same
variables.
