"the shell"?

Well, if you're using a shell which breaks up arguments like that, and that you don't want to run your application under different conditions at any point, then yes, it would work. However, a lot of shells don't. Shells break arguments up in a number of different ways. I usually find the simplist way of making sure my app comparatively portable is to join these elements of ARGV back up. I apologies for not making this clearer at the top of my first post in this thread. And I also apologies for making it clearer that I was pointing out the problems of an equals in the value.

The example you've given would work under the system you have now like that. But I didn't miss the point, I just explained myself badly.

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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
