... the script still does nothing.
[root@wsprod01 myperl]# ./ --domain --client google Usage: ./ --domain --client company [--job-co +de 12345] [--help].

In the code shown in the OP, in the statement

GetOptions ( 'domain=s' => \$domain, 'client=s' => \$client, 'job-code:i' => \$job_code, 'help' => &usage() ) or &usage();
the  'help' key is given the value of whatever is returned by a call to the  usage() function. Problem is, this function returns nothing; rather, it calls die to print a usage message, so program execution will never get past the  GetOptions() function call. Is this what you intend?


  1. If you want to assign the  'help' key a reference to the  usage() function,
        'help' => \&usage,
    would be the correct expression.
  2. Added italic emphasis in "... a call to the  usage() function."

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.
