table-driven argument parsing for Perl 5
DescriptionGetopt::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
* 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
* Options can be abbreviated and come in any order.
* A "spoof" mode in which arguments are parsed without side-effects.
Upload new screenshots
Thanks for uploading more screenshots. Please note:
- Your screenshot should contain a typical scene when working with it.
- Take only a screenshot of the respective application and not of your whole desktop (unless the screenshot is meant for a window manager).
- Your screenshots must be in PNG format.
- You can upload multiple images at once.
- Your screenshot need to be approved by the moderators first. You will already see your screenshot but it will not be visible to others instantly. If moderators reject your upload you will get notified next time you visit this site (requires cookies).
- Images larger than 800x600 pixels will automatically be reduced. So don't try to capture too much detail in a screenshot. It may become unreadable. Shrink the applications window if possible.
- Screenshots are made public and can freely be used by anyone.
- Useful programs for making screenshots are shutter, ksnapshot (KDE), gimp, xwd or scrot. See the Debian wiki for more information on how to make screenshots under Debian.
- Please set your language to english so that everybody understands it. If you don't use english by default please start your application from a shell using after setting "export LANG=C".
