NAME

Getopt::Long::Modern - Use Getopt::Long with modern defaults

SYNOPSIS

 use Getopt::Long::Modern;
 GetOptions(
   "f|foo=i" => \my $foo,
   "b|bar"   => \my $bar,
   "Z|baz=s" => \my @baz,
 );

DESCRIPTION

Getopt::Long::Modern is a simple wrapper of Getopt::Long to reduce the amount of typing needed to get modern defaults, and to avoid having to remember the correct incantations. See "Summary of Option Specifications" in Getopt::Long for details on specifying options using Getopt::Long.

Only the GetOptions function from Getopt::Long is exported. Additional Getopt::Long configuration may be passed as import parameters.

 use Getopt::Long::Modern qw(auto_help auto_version pass_through);

For any more advanced usage, you should probably use Getopt::Long directly. The equivalent Getopt::Long configuration to using this module is:

 use Getopt::Long qw(:config gnu_getopt no_ignore_case);

DEFAULTS

Getopt::Long::Modern currently sets the following configuration options by default. See "Configuring Getopt::Long" in Getopt::Long for more details on available configuration.

gnu_getopt

This sets gnu_compat to allow --opt= for setting an empty string option, bundling to allow short options to be bundled together, permute to allow specifying options before or after other arguments, and no_getopt_compat to disallow + for specifying options.

no_ignore_case

This makes all options case-sensitive, which is expected and required when explicitly specifying short options of the same character but different case.
