Name        : perl-Getopt-GUI-Long
Product     : Fedora 8
Version     : 0.8
Release     : 1.fc8
URL         : http://search.cpan.org/dist/Getopt-GUI-Long/
Summary     : A wrapper around Getopt::Long to provide a GUI to applications
Description :
This module is a wrapper around Getopt::Long that extends the value of
the original Getopt::Long module to:

1) add a simple graphical user interface option screen if no
   arguments are passed to the program.  Thus, the arguments to
   actually use are built based on the results of the user
   interface. If arguments were passed to the program, the user
   interface is not shown and the program executes as it normally
   would and acts just as if Getopt::Long::GetOptions had been
   called instead.

2) provide an auto-help mechanism such that -h and --help are
   handled automatically.  In fact, calling your program with -h
   will default to showing the user a list of short-style arguments
   when one exists for the option.  Similarly --help will show the
   user a list of long-style when possible.  --help-full will list
   all potential arguments for an option (short and long both).

It's designed to make the creation of graphical shells trivial
without the programmer having to think about it much as well as
providing automatic good-looking usage output without the
programmer needing to write usage() functions.
