Hi Saved,
Apparently, you didn't pass any argument to your script from the Command Line Interface (CLI), when running it.
So, your variable @libfiles is empty, thus, when pass to a scalar variable you get the output "0", when printed.
Consider this:

use warnings; use strict; use Data::Printer; my @gn; p @gn; # print [] i.e empty print my $c = () = @gn; ## print 0

So to get the desired result, do this from your CLI:perl script.pl --library=foo,bar,baz then press <ENTER> key.
using the following as your perl script.
# your script.pl use warnings; use strict; use Getopt::Long; my @libfiles; GetOptions( 'library=s' => \@libfiles ); @libfiles = split( /,/, join( ',', @libfiles ) ); print "@libfiles\n"; my $LstCnt = @libfiles; print "$LstCnt\n";
Output
foo bar baz 3
So, Getopt::Long is not broken after all.
++ martoz.
Hope this helps

If you tell me, I'll forget.
If you show me, I'll remember.
if you involve me, I'll understand.
