Official Mirror:
Getopt::Tabular is a Perl 5 module for table-driven argument parsing, vaguely inspired by John Ousterhout's Tk_ParseArgv. Some nice features of Getopt::Tabular are: * Command-line arguments are carefully type-checked, both by pattern and number -- e.g. if an option requires two integers, GetOptions makes sure that exactly two integers follow it! * The valid command-line arguments are specified in a data structure separate from the call to GetOptions; this makes it easier to have very long lists of options, and to parse options from multiple sources (e.g. the command line, an environment variable, and a configuration file). * Getopt::Tabular can intelligently generate help text based on your option descriptions. * The type system is extensible, and if you can define your desired argument type using a single Perl regular expression then it's particularly easy to extend. * Options can be abbreviated and come in any order. * A "spoof" mode in which arguments are parsed without side-effects.
