It's dumb but I need an answer

by Anonymous Monk
on Apr 18, 2002 at 16:09 UTC ( #160245=perlquestion: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Anonymous Monk has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Is it possible to pass variable values to a perl program directly from the DOS command line? I'm thinking of a notation like this: c:\>perl myscript 10 where 10 is the value that my script wants to use. Please help. Thanks.

[Corion]: Hi marto!
[Corion]: I just found out that in $current_top_prior ity_project , the part I am in is not even in the top three worries. That's somewhat bad, not because I'm happy with being a top worry but because that means that I don't even know how bad the rest ...
[Corion]: ... of the situation is :-)
[marto]: it's good to know that things can always get worse :P
