Sets up a working skeleton for an CGI::Application::Structured-based project, packaged as a CPAN module. The script also generates:

     - a base controller class
     - an organized directory structure to contain your modules
     - a default Home module (subclass of base controller)
     - a default runmode for Home ('index') with a corresponding template
     - a default configuration for Template Toolkit
     - basic automated tests 
     - a helper script to generate controller subclasses and TT templates
     - a helper script to generate DBIx::Class schema and resultset classes for your database.

By default the skeleton files can be found in the templates directory where CGI::Application::Structured::Tools::Starter is stored.

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

See CGI::Application::Structured for a brief tutorial on using the helper scripts.
