Getargs::Long - Named subroutine arguments, with optional type checking The "Getargs::Long" module allows usage of named parameters in function calls, along with optional argument type-checking. It provides an easy way to get at the parameters within the routine, and yields concise descriptions for the common cases of all-mandatory and all-optional parameter lists. *** This is alpha software -- use at your own risk *** MODULE DEPENDENCIES To use this module, you will need to install: - Log::Agent - version::Limit To test this module, you will need to install: - Test::More INSTALLATION To install this package, change to the directory where you unarchived this distribution and type the following: perl Makefile.PL make make test make install You can install this package into a non-default location by appending one of the following to the "perl Makefile.PL" command: - "PREFIX=/installation/path" (for installation into a custom location), - "INSTALLDIRS=site" (for installation into site-specific Perl directories) - "INSTALLDIRS=perl" (for installation into standard Perl directories). If you make the installation into your own directory, then remember that you must tell perl where to search for modules before trying to 'use' them. For example: use lib '/home/userid/lib'; use Getargs::Long; INSTALLATION PROBLEMS If "make test" fails, run make test TEST_VERBOSE=1 and see which test(s) are failing. Please email the results to the address below, or submit a bug report on the project website as described in the section REPORTING BUGS below. For other bugs, see the section REPORTING BUGS below.
