"module-starter" is a command-line interface to Module::Starter, which it uses to perform
all the work of creating distributions. An alternate backend for "module-starter" can be
specified with the "--class" option. Plugins to the standard Module::Starter module can
be specified with one or more "--plugin" options.

If no directory name is supplied, the distribution name will be used for the directory.
If no distribution name is supplied, the first listed module name will be used as the
distribution name.

Multiple --builder options may be supplied to produce the files for multiple builders.


module-starter will look for a configuration file before reading its command line
parameters. The default location is "$HOME/.module-starter/config" but if the
MODULE_STARTER_DIR environment variable is set, module-starter will look for "config" in
that directory.

The configuration file is just a list of names and values, separated by colons. Values
that take lists are just space separated. Note that the "--ignores" command line parameter
corresponds to the "ignores_type" configuration file entry. A sample configuration file
might read:

author: Ricardo SIGNES
email: [email protected]
ignores_type: git
plugins: Module::Starter::Simple Module::Starter::Plugin::XYZ
xyz_option: red green blue

This format may become more elaborate in the future, but a file of this type should remain
