Getopt::Long::Descriptive::Opts - object representing command line switches
This class is the base class of all $opt
objects returned by
Getopt::Long::Descriptive. In general, you do not want to think about this
class, look at it, or alter it. Seriously, it's pretty dumb.
Every call to "describe_options" will return a object of a new subclass of
this class. It will have a method for the canonical name of each option
possible given the option specifications.
Method names beginning with an single underscore are public, and are named that
way to avoid conflict with automatically generated methods. Methods with
multiple underscores (in case you're reading the source) are private.
All methods beginning with an underscore are experimental as of
today, 2009-12-12. They are likely to be formally made permanent soon.
This method returns true if the given name was specified on the command line.
For example, if @ARGS was ""--foo --bar 10"" and "baz" is defined by a
default, "_specified" will return true for foo and bar, and false for baz.
This method returns an opt object in which only explicitly specified values are
defined. Values which were set by defaults will appear undef.
This method returns the opts object with all values, including those set by
defaults. It is probably not going to be very often-used.
