8.87 Getopt::Std

Processes single-character command-line options with option clustering. Exports two functions, which analyze @ARGV , extract information about the options, and return this information to your program in a set of variables. Processing of @ARGV stops when an argument without a leading - is encountered, if that argument is not associated with a preceding option. Otherwise, @ARGV is processed to the end and left empty.
