Getopt::Long questionby Cody Pendant (Prior)
|on Mar 02, 2009 at 23:55 UTC||Need Help??|
Cody Pendant has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I'm using Getopt::Long, like this:
And when I call my script like this:
scriptname --dir foo --year 2007 --delay 30
everything is fine.
When I call it like this, with the options in a different order, it dies:
But if I add an equals sign, it's OK:
scriptname --dir foo --delay 30 --year=2007
I can't figure out what's going on by referring to the module's documentation on CPAN. TIA.
Nobody says perl looks like line-noise any more
