Summary: interpolates script options from files into @ARGV or another array
This module simply interpolates option file hints in @ARGV
by the contents of the pointed files. This enables option
reading from *files* instead of or additional to the usual
reading from the command line.
Alternatively, you can process any array instead of @ARGV
which is used by default and mentioned mostly in this manual.
The interpolated @ARGV could be subsequently processed by
the usual option handling, e.g. by a Getopt::xxx module.
Getopt::ArgvFile does *not* perform any option handling itself,
it only prepares the array @ARGV.
Option files can significantly simplify the call of a script.
