Subject: cover has confusing docs for -report
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 387b
When I run cover --help it tells me the following: -report report_format - report format required (default html) But if a format is required why is there a default? If I run "cover -report" it fails with a somewhat obscure error: Bad option at /usr/local/lib/perl/5.8.7/Devel/Cover/Report/Html_minimal.pm line 675 I guess that makes this two bug reports in one. Sorry.

That's an unclear description, I'm afraid. I wanted to say that it is the format of the report required by the user. I've just dropped the word "required". Show quoted text

This is a little tricky. There are general options to cover, and each report can take extra options specific to the report. Unknown options are passed though to the report for it to deal with. I probably need to completely overhaul how that works, but for now I've just changed the error message to something hopefully a little more clear. Show quoted text

That's fine - two patches in one ;-) http://pjcj.sytes.net/svnweb/Devel::Cover/revision/?rev=187 -- Paul Johnson - paul@pjcj.net http://www.pjcj.net
