in reply to Win32::Setupsup quandry

I'd guess [correctly]1 that the usage message is just missing the \ before @proptoget. I'd check my guess but Win32::Setupsup is not [indexed]1 on CPAN so I gave up looking for it. Shame on the module author [for not following the documented conventions such that the module would get indexed (I presume2)]1.

2 I didn't download the *.zip, extract the files, read up on the conventions, etc. (I didn't go way out of my way to debug this module's problems.) If the module had been indexed in CPAN, then I could read the source (or documentation) directly with my browser (to name just a few of the advantages), so I don't feel too bad about being cheap with my time when it comes to "supporting" modules that can't manage to get that part right.

I've been guilty of this myself, but I don't expect people to be generous with their time supporting my failures and I feel shame for it, so I'm not being a hypocrit. q-:

    tye, it is in CPAN, but something prevents it from showing up in any search.
