Getopt::Complete makes it easy to add custom command-line completion to Perl
applications. It also does additional validation of arguments, when the
program is actually executed, based on completion lists.
Support is also present for apps which are an entry point for a hierarchy of
sub-commands (in the style of cvs and git).
Getopt::Complete also wraps the standard options processing and exports it as
a %ARGS hash at compile time, making using the arguments hassle-free.
The completion features currently work with the bash shell, which is the
default on most Linux and Mac systems. Patches for other shells are welcome.
