Personally, I tend to keep thingsl ike synonyms in a data structure of their own. So, I might do something like:
my %options = ( verbose => 0, everything => 1, ); my %synonyms = ( verbose => [ qw( talkative )], everything => [ qw( all )], ); GetOptions( \%options, ( map { join\('|', $_, @{ $synonyms{$_} || []}) } keys %options ), );
This way you can, at a glance, see exactly what your synonyms are, laid out nice as can be. A similar thing can be done with the "=i", "=s", etc.
