Getopt::Long::More - Like Getopt::Long, but with more stuffs

    This document describes version 0.007 of Getopt::Long::More (from Perl
    distribution Getopt-Long-More), released on 2020-04-08.

     use Getopt::Long::More; # imports GetOptions as well as optspec; you can also
                             # explicitly import Configure, GetOptionsFromArray,
                             # GetOptionsFromString

     my %opts;
         # just like in Getopt::Long
         'foo=s' => \$opts{foo},
         'bar'   => sub { ... },

         # but if you want to specify extra stuffs...
         'baz'   => optspec(
             # will be passed to Getopt::Long
             destination => \$opts{baz},

             # specify that this option is required
             required => 1,

             # specify this for default value
             default => 10,

             # specify this if you want nicer usage message
             summary => 'Blah blah blah',

             # specify longer (multiparagraphs) of text for POD, in POD format
             description => <<'_',
    Blah blah ...
    Blah blah ...
    blah blah

             # provide completion from a list of strings
             # completion => [qw/apple apricot banana/],

             # provide more advanced completion routine
             completion => sub {
                 require Complete::Util;
                 my %args = @_;
                     word => $args{word},
                     array => [ ... ],

             # other properties: x or x.* or _* are allowed
             'x.debug' => 'blah',
             _app_code => {foo=>1},

    This module is a wrapper and drop-in replacement for Getopt::Long. It
    provides the same interface as Getopt::Long and, unlike other wrappers
    like Getopt::Long::Complete or Getopt::Long::Modern it does not change
    default configuration and all Getopt::Long configuration are supported.
    In fact, Getopt::Long::More behaves much like Getopt::Long until you
    start to use optspec object as one or more option destinations.

    In addition to using scalarref, arrayref, hashref, or coderef as the
    option destination as Getopt::Long allows, Getopt::Long::More also
    allows using optspec object as the destination. This enables you to
    specify more stuffs.

    Optspec object is created using the "optspec" function which accepts a
    list of property name-property value pairs:

     '--fruit=s' => optspec(
         destination => \$opts{fruit},
         default => 'apple',
         summary => 'Supply name of fruit to order',
         completion => [qw/apple apricot banana/],

    All properties are optional.

  destination =>  ScalarRef / ArrayRef / HashRef /  CodeRef
    The "destination" property, if present, will be passed to Getopt::Long
    when parsing options.

    Note that, in previous versions of this module, "destination" was
    referred to as "handler", which is now deprecated. At this time
    "handler" is still being accepted as an *alias* for "destination", but
    do NOT count on that forever. The name "handler" will be discontinued at
    one point. You have been warned.

    In addition to "destination", these other properties are also

  required => bool
    Set this to 1 to specify that the option is required.

  default => any
    Provide default for the option.

  summary => str
    Provide a short summary message for the option. This is used when
    generating usage/help message.

  description => str
    Provide a longer (multiparagraph) text, in POD format. Will be used to
    generate POD.

  completion => array|code
    Provide completion routine. Can also be a simple array of strings.

    Completion routine will be passed a hash argument, with at least the
    following keys: "word" (str, the word to be completed). It is expected
    to return a completion answer structure (see Complete for mor edetails)
    which is usually just an array of strings.

  x, x.*, _* => any
    You are allowed to have properties named "x" or anything that begins
    with "x." or "_". These are ignored by Getopt::Long::More. You can use
    store comments or whatever additional information here.

  HelpMessage(@opts_spec) => str
    Will print a usage/help message and exit. Sample result:

     myapp [options]

       --fruit=s     Supply name of fruit to order (default: apple)
       --debug       Enable debug mode
       --help|?      Print help message and exit
       --version     Print usage message and exit

    See Getopt::Long documentation.

  OptionsPod(@opts_spec) => str
    Will generate a POD containing list of options. The text will be taken
    from the "summary" and "description" properties of optspec objects.
    Example result:

     =head1 OPTIONS

     =head2 --fruit|f=s

     Supply name of fruit to order.

     Blah blah blah
     blah blah ...

     =head2 --debug

     =head2 --version

     Display program version and exit.

     =head2 --help

     Display help message and exit.

  optspec(%props) => obj
    Create optspec object. See "OPTSPEC OBJECT".

    Getopt::Long::Mode supports shell tab completion. To activate tab
    completion, put your script (e.g. "") in "PATH" and in bash
    shell type:

     % complete -C

    You can then complete option names (or option values or command-line
    arguments too, if you provide "completion" properties). You can also use
    shcompgen to activate shell completion; shcompgen supports several
    shells and various modules.

    Tab completion functionality is provided by Complete::Getopt::Long. Note
    that this module assumes "no_ignore_case" and does not support things
    like "getopt_compat" (starting option with "+" instead of "--").

  How do I provide completion for command-line arguments:
    Use the option spec "<>":

         '<>' => optspec(
             destination => \&process,
             completion => sub {
