( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I don't know, somehow I prefer to have option descriptions close to the declarations. A POD is (hopefully) a comprehensive manual with detailed explanations, whereas --help is just a quick reminder for those who can't keep all the options in their head. Maybe I'm wrong and will change my mind later.

#2 is merely avoiding namespace pollution (via lots of exported functions - easy to forget or hit a collision), @ISA clutter (when one has to extend a Getopt:: class - I've seen that a couple times on CPAN), and awkward syntax (local $Foo::Bar::VariableName = $Foo::Bar::VariableName + 1 is a cool feature, but let's use it when it's needed).

Oh and thanks for mentioning Pod::Usage, I didn't know of that one.

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.
