100% agree with this! And Getopt::Long is extremely easy:

use 5.026000; use warnings; use Getopt::Long; GetOptions ( "B|before=i" => \my $before, # An integer argument is required ) or die "User-friendly message\n");

And if you want -B without any argument to default to say 42, all you have to change is

GetOptions ( "B|before:42" => \my $before, # An integer argument is optional an +d defaults to 42 when -B used without arg ) or die "User-friendly message\n");

One step further: set a default, and also give a different default for -B without argument

GetOptions ( "B|before:42" => \(my $before = 2), ) or die "User-friendly message\n");

In the first two examples $before will have the value undef when the option -B is not given at all. In the last example the default will be 2.

Enjoy, Have FUN! H.Merijn

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
