Getopt::Declare provides facilities to parse command line options. It builds
and runs a parser. The parser object can be saved and later run on different
input. Key features are:
* Automatic generation of error, usage and version information
* Matching of parameter components may be constrained by regular expressions
* Execution of embedded actions
* Declarative specification of inter-parameter relationships
* Selective or global case-insensitive matching of parameters
