=head1 NAME

Getopt::Compact - getopt processing in a compact statement with both
long and short options, and usage functionality.


inside foobar.pl:

    use Getopt::Compact;

    # (1) simple usage:
    my $opts = new Getopt::Compact
        (struct =>
         [[[qw(b baz)], qq(baz option)],  # -b or --baz
          ["foobar", qq(foobar option)],  # --foobar only

    # (2) or, a more advanced usage:
    my $go = new Getopt::Compact
        (name => 'foobar program', modes => [qw(verbose test debug)],
         struct =>
         [[[qw(w wibble)], qq(specify a wibble parameter), ':s'],
          [[qw(f foobar)], qq(apply foobar algorithm)],
          [[qw(j joobies)], qq(jooby integer list), '=i', \@joobs],
    my $opts = $go->opts;

    print "applying foobar algorithm\n" if $opt->{foobar};
    print "joobs: @joobs\n" if @joobs;
    print $go->usage if MyModule::some_error_condition($opts);

using (2), running the command './foobar.pl -x' results in the
following output:

    Unknown option: x
    foobar program v1.0
    usage: foobar.pl [options]
    -h, --help      This help message
    -v, --verbose   Verbose mode
    -n, --test      Test mode
    -d, --debug     Debug mode
    -w, --wibble    Specify a wibble parameter
    -f, --foobar    Apply foobar algorithm
    -j, --joobies   Jooby integer list
        --man       Display documentation


This is yet another Getopt related module.  Getopt::Compact is geared
towards compactly and yet quite powerfully describing an option
syntax.  Options can be parsed, returned as a hashref of values,
and/or displayed as a usage string or within the script POD.


=over 4

=item new()

    my $go = new Getopt::Compact(%options)

Instantiates a Getopt::Compact object.  This will parse the command
line arguments and store them for later retrieval (via the opts()
method).  On error a usage string is printed and exit() is called,
unless you have set the 'usage' option to false.

The following constructor options are recognised:

=over 4

=item C<name>

The name of the program.  This is printed at the start of the usage string.

=item C<cmd>

The command used to execute this program.  Defaults to $0.  This will be
printed as part of the usage string.

=item C<version>

Program version.  Can be an RCS Version string, or any other string.
Displayed in usage information.  The default is ($main::VERSION || '1.0')

=item C<usage>

'usage' is set to true by default.  Set it to false (0) to disable the
default behaviour of automatically printing a usage string and exiting
when there are parse errors or the --help option is given.

=item C<args>

A string describing mandatory arguments to display in the usage string.

    print new Getopt::Compact
        (args => 'foo', cmd => 'bar.pl')->usage;


    usage: bar.pl [options] foo

=item C<modes>

This is a shortcut for defining boolean mode options, such as verbose
and test modes.  Set it to an arrayref of mode names, eg
[qw(verbose test)].  The following statements are equivalent:

    # longhand version
    my $go = new Getopt::Compact
        (struct => [[[qw(v verbose)], qw(verbose mode)],
                    [[qw(n test)],    qw(test mode)],
                    [[qw(d debug)],   qw(debug mode)],
                    [[qw(f foobar)],  qw(activate foobar)],


    # shorthand version
    my $go = new Getopt::Compact
        (modes => [qw(verbose test debug)],
         struct => [[[qw(f foobar)], qq(activate foobar)]]);

Mode options will be prepended to any options defined via the 'struct'

=item C<struct>

This is where most of the option configuration is done.  The format
for a struct option is an arrayref of arrayrefs (see C<SYNOPSIS>) in
the following form (where [ ] denotes an array reference):

    struct => [optarray, optarray, ...]

and each optarray is an array reference in the following form:
(only 'name specification' is required)

    [name spec, description, argument spec, destination]

name specification may be a scalar string, eg "length", or a reference
to an array of alternate option names, eg [qw(l length)].  The option
name specification is also used to determine the key to the option
value in the hashref returned by C<opts()>.  See C<opts()> for more

The argument specification is passed directly to Getopt::Long, so any
syntax recognised by Getopt::Long should also work here.  Some argument
specifications are:

    =s  Required string argument
    :s  Optional string argument
    =i  Required integer argument
    +   Value incrementing
    !   Negatable option

Refer to L<Getopt::Long> documentation for more details on argument

The 'destination' is an optional reference to a variable that will
hold the option value.  If destination is not specified it will be
stored internally by Getopt::Compact and can be retrieved via the
opts() method.
This is useful if you want options to accept multiple values.  The
only way to achieve this is to use a destination that is a reference
to a list (see the joobies option in C<SYNOPSIS> by way of example).

=item C<configure>

Optional configure arguments to pass to Getopt::Long::Configure in the form
of a hashref of key, boolean value pairs.
By default, the following configuration is used:

{ no_auto_abbrev => 1, bundling => 1 }

To disable bundling and have case insensitive single-character options you
would do the following:

new Getopt::Compact
    (configure => { ignorecase_always => 1, bundling => 0 });

see Getopt::Long documentation for more information on configuration options.


=item $go->usage()

    print $go->usage();

Returns a usage string.  Normally the usage string will be printed
automatically and the program will exit if the user supplies an
unrecognised argument or if the -h or --help option is given.
Automatic usage and exiting can be disabled by setting 'usage'
to false (0) in the constructor (see new()).
This method uses L<Text::Table> internally to format the usage output.

The following options may be automatically added by Getopt::Compact:

=over 4

=item "This help message" (-h or --help)

A help option is automatically prepended to the list of available
options if the C<usage> constructor option is true (this is enabled by
default).  When invoked with -h or --help, Getopt::Compact
automatically displays the usage string and exits.

=item "Display documentation" (--man)

This option is appended to the list of available options unless an
alternative --man option has been defined.  When invoked with --man,
Getopt::Compact prints a modified version of its POD to stdout and


=item $go->pod2usage()

Displays the POD for the script.  The POD will be altered to include
C<USAGE>, C<NAME> and C<VERSION> sections unless they already exist.
This is invoked automatically when the --man option is given.

=item $go->status()

    print "getopt ".($go->status ? 'success' : 'error'),"\n";

The return value from Getopt::Long::Getoptions(). This is a true value
if the command line was processed successfully. Otherwise it returns a
false result.

=item $go->opts()

    $opt = $go->opts;

Returns a hashref of options keyed by option name.  If the
constructor usage option is true (on by default), then a usage string
will be printed and the program will exit if it encounters an
unrecognised option or the -h or --help option is given.

The key in %$opt for each option is determined by the option names
in the specification used in the C<struct> definition.  For example:

=over 4

=item ["foo", qw(foo option)]

The key will be "foo".

=item [[qw(f foo)], qw(foo option)]

=item [[qw(f foo foobar)], qw(foo option)]

In both cases the key will be "foo".  If multiple option names are
given, the first long option name (longer than one character) will be
used as the key.

=item [[qw(a b)], qq(a or b option)]

The key here will be "a".  If all alternatives are one character, the first option name in the list is used as the key
