Generate or Check the 'requires' and 'test requires' for Makefile.PL

This started out as a way of generating the core for a Module::Install::DSL Makefile.PL, why DSL because it's nice and clean, so now I can generate the contents when I want, rather than as I add new use and require statments, and because adam kicked me :)

Version: 0.09_02


Change to the root of the package you want to scan and run


Now with a added Getopt --help or -?

midgen -?

Usage: midgen [options]

   --help        brief help message
   --output      change format
   --core        show perl core modules
   --verbose     take a little peek as to what is going on
   --base        Don't check for base includes
   --mojo        Don't be Mojo friendly
   --debug       lots of stuff


--help or -h or -?
    Print a brief help message and exits.
