First pass opinion: When you have both --file-pattern and --dir-pattern, --pattern is redundant.

So, make --pattern & ( --file-pattern &| --dir-pattern ) mutually exclusive.

Existing code using --pattern continues to work as is.

New code can choose to stick with the old -- subject to the caveat of the known bug -- or switch to using the new mechanism.

Existing code continues to work; new code can choose to works better.

Potentially; pre-deprecate --pattern. That is, warn that it will(may) go away at some point in the future.


With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

RIP Neil Armstrong

    [Lady_Aleena]: Renaming things like get_THAC0 to just THAC0 was easy. These are harder.
    [james28909]: consolidate the three subs into one
    [Lady_Aleena]: Um, what?
    [james28909]: check is is data or hash or array and do tasks then return needed data
    [Lady_Aleena]: james28909, you might want to look at the other two on my scratchpad.
