in reply to Useless use of string eq

I could be wrong, but this smells like a good opportunity to learn about Getopt::Long. I tend to use it with the hashref method like this.

use Getopt::Long; my $opts = {}; # # maybe set some overridable defaults... # $opts->{target} = 'foo'; $opts->{cust} = 'SMC'; GetOptions( $opts, 'target=s', 'cust=s', 'cotime=s', );

Now, if you type --target bar --cust FET --cotime baz then your $opts hashref will be populated accordingly. $opts->{target} will be 'bar', $opts->{cust} will be FET, $opts->{cotime} will be 'baz'. Setting defaults as I've demonstrated allows you to skip some of the command line args.


Therapy is expensive. Popping bubble wrap is cheap. You choose.
