Yeah I do use this style as well. However it still presents duplication when you want to provide defaults or multiple names or types for options (which rules out a quick key %opts), in fact its worse because you dont have compile time var name checking of the var names if they get out of synch. In other words the connection between destination and source becomes too loose and it becomes really easy to make a subtle error

my %opt={verbose=>0,all=>0); GetOptions(\%opt,'talkative|verbose','everything|all');

So what happens if we werent careful and do it like

GetOptions(\%opt,'talkative|verbose','all|everything');

Oops, now the --all options goes to the wrong place.

Anyway, I still would use the %hash style as well for some situations, and as the interface to Getopt::Long is so flexible you can mix the two:

GetOptions(\%opts,'Debug=i'=>\(my $Debug=0),'verbose','all');

And then theres also using subs for the options... Mmm fun!

    [stevieb]: shmem It's something I desired to have years ago, which is why I took over berrybrew. Cross-platform build/test automation locally, or over the network Test::BrewBuild
    [shmem]: sounds good.
    [shmem]: but I'm crumbling smaller stones. remember...
    [stevieb]: I'm working on it to fatten it up and make it more reliant so I can finalize my Raspberry Pi automated build system for that software :) It's all well and fun, until I try to make it work with Windows lol
    [shmem]: "debugging a program is more difficult than to write it in the first place. If you code your program as smart as you are, you are, by definition, too dumb to debug it."
    [stevieb]: I literally laughed. That's good :) Perhaps I just need to go climb another mountain and forget about it
