Wrapper around Getopt::Long
This module is a wrapper around GetoptLong that extends the value of the original GetoptLong module to
1 add a simple graphical user interface option screen if no arguments are passed to the program. 2 provide an auto-help mechanism such that -h and –help are handled automatically.
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.
This also can turn normal command line programs into web CGI scripts as well automatically. If the GetoptGUILong program is installed as a CGI script then it will automatically prompt the user for the same variables.
