Getopt::Clade is a Perl module with command-Line Argument Declaration Engine.
This module is a placeholder for the real Getopt::Clade module. The module was supposed to be released by July 2005, to support the book "Perl Best Practices". Unfortunately, due to a series of family medical crises, the release of the module has been delayed, probably to early September 2005.
I sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this delay may cause. If you are looking for an alternative Getopt:: module, you may like to consider Getopt::Declare or Getopt::Euclid.
