AppConfig::Getopt(3)	       User Contributed Perl Documentation	     AppConfig::Getopt(3)

       AppConfig::Getopt - Perl5 module for processing command line arguments via delegation to

	   use AppConfig::Getopt;

	   my $state  = AppConfig::State->new(\%cfg);
	   my $getopt = AppConfig::Getopt->new($state);

	   $getopt->parse(\@args);	      # read args

       AppConfig::Getopt is a Perl5 module which delegates to Johan Vroman's Getopt::Long module
       to parse command line arguments and update values in an AppConfig::State object

       AppConfig::Getopt is distributed as part of the AppConfig bundle.

   USING THE AppConfig::Getopt MODULE
       To import and use the AppConfig::Getopt module the following line should appear in your
       Perl script:

	   use AppConfig::Getopt;

       AppConfig::Getopt is used automatically if you use the AppConfig module and create an
       AppConfig::Getopt object through the getopt() method.

       AppConfig::Getopt is implemented using object-oriented methods.	A new AppConfig::Getopt
       object is created and initialised using the new() method.  This returns a reference to a
       new AppConfig::Getopt object.  A reference to an AppConfig::State object should be passed
       in as the first parameter:

	   my $state  = AppConfig::State->new();
	   my $getopt = AppConfig::Getopt->new($state);

       This will create and return a reference to a new AppConfig::Getopt object.

       The "parse()" method is used to read a list of command line arguments and update the state

       The first (non-list reference) parameters may contain a number of configuration strings to
       pass to Getopt::Long::Configure.  A reference to a list of arguments may additionally be
       passed or @ARGV is used by default.

	   $getopt->parse();			   # uses @ARGV
	   $getopt->parse(qw(auto_abbrev debug));  # uses @ARGV
	   $getopt->parse(qw(debug), \@myargs);

       See Getopt::Long for details of the configuartion options available.

       A Getopt::Long specification string is constructed for each variable defined in the
       AppConfig::State.  This consists of the name, any aliases and the ARGS value for the

       These specification string are then passed to Getopt::Long, the arguments are parsed and
       the values in the AppConfig::State updated.

       See AppConfig for information about using the AppConfig::Getopt module via the getopt()

       Many thanks are due to Johan Vromans for the Getopt::Long module.  He was kind enough to
       offer assistance and access to early releases of his code to enable this module to be
