Why did you ignore the hint to avoid <pre>-Tags around your post?

Did you only think about the given code, or did you try it?

You also could have a look at Getopt::Long, which explains what happens, if an option doesn't have its optional argument...

Another possibility is something like this:

#! /usr/bin/perl # vim:ts=4 sw=4 sts=4 et nu fdc=3: use strict; use warnings; use Getopt::Long; my $x = "unset"; GetOptions( 'x:s' => sub { $x = $_[1] ? $_[1] : 'true' }, ) or exit 255; print "$x\n";

It's up to you to refine the checks and values to fit your needs.


$ perl /tmp/ unset $ perl /tmp/ -x true $ perl /tmp/ -x foo foo

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
