in thread Use of uninitialized value $_ in string

I suspect that is what's intended AnomalousMonk - I've yet to write/encounter a script or command that generates usage/help ... and then proceeds onwards.

A user level that continues to overstate my experience :-))

    But the problem I see is not so much with what happens when the  usage() function is called as with the initialization of the  'help' key when the  GetOptions() function is called.  usage() is called during this initialization, so script execution never gets beyond the  GetOptions() call.

      Ah, ok, didn't spot that meaning at all - my excuse being that it was Saturday and I was girding my loins to go and watch my team.
