Subject: req vs opt named parameters when using aliases
Download (untitled) / with headers

Error: "a required parameter cannot follow an optional parameter at / home/signinr/perl/Params/ line 138" The documentation doesn't really describe the behavior, but apparently the use of an alias removes the required attribute from a parameter. Thus a sequence of 'required' parameters when one in the middle has an alias will cause the entire parse to fail and croak with a mysterious error. Example: @template = ( { name => 'first', required => 1, }, { name => 'second|2nd', required => 1, }, { name => 'third', required => 1, }); Will cause a croak because the second parameter has its required attribute removed, and the third parameter is required thus failing the libraries check for this behavior.
