|Subject:||Required parameter missing isn't fatal|
The DIAGNOSTICS section of the documentation says that required parameters missing should generate a fatal error along with the error message. I'm having a case where it's not generating a fatal error. Here's the relevant part of the spec: -in <files:if>... [required] The input file(s) of example sentences (one sentence per line). Here's the output on error: Error: in parameter '-in' (file "Swype/keith-sms.txt23" is not readable) Error: required parameter -in not found. (try 'test_examples.pl -help' for more information) But then it just continues running. Though I think I'm realizing it's probably safer to not use the :if type specifier in this case anyway, cause it would silently ignore anything after a file that doesn't exist in a list right? Running ActiveState Perl 5.12.4 x64 on Windows 7 64-bit under cygwin Overall though, I really like Getopt::Declare.
