*Distribution name*: Getopt-Long-Complete-0.30 *Perl version*: 5.26 *OS*: CYGWIN_NT-10.0 bornholm 2.9.0(0.318/5/3) 2017-09-12 10:18 x86_64 Cygwin Thank you for GLC! Getopt::Long allows specifying "right-hand sides" for certain options, even when using a hashref as the first argument. One use case is a coderef for parameter verification of a particular option. (Unfortunately I don't see it spelled out in the package's current documentation. I do make heavy use of it in my scripts and can attest that it is fully working, though.) Code example: #!/usr/bin/env perl use strict; use warnings; use Getopt::Long::Complete; my %Opts; GetOptions( \%Opts , 'foo' , 'demo=s' => \$Opts{abc} , 'help' => sub { print "Usage: $0 [--demo A] [--foo]\n"; exit; } ) or die; print "abc: $Opts{abc}\n"; print "foo: $Opts{foo}\n"; Execution: Show quoted text
> ./ --foo --demo bar
abc: bar foo: 1 Show quoted text
Can't parse option spec 'CODE(0x600153928)' at /usr/local/share/perl5/site_perl/5.26/Complete/Getopt/ line 302. Fix: See attached Complete.patch. Best regards, Sebastian Schleussner
