|Subject:||get_shortname() is not called with arguments|
At, get_shortname() is not called with any arguments. It should be called as get_shortname($arg), and the line above it (getting the shortname from the plugin) should be removed, as this is already done by get_shortname(). In the current code, there is no way to override the shortname if Nagios::Plugin::Functions is used directly. PS. If this code is hosted somewhere public like github, and you add the repository information to the distribution's metadata, I can provide a pull request. see for more information.
