Acme::CPANModules::PERLANCAR::MyGetoptLongExperiment - My experiments writing Getopt::Long replacements/alternatives


This document describes version 0.010 of Acme::CPANModules::PERLANCAR::MyGetoptLongExperiment (from Perl distribution Acme-CPANModulesBundle-PERLANCAR), released on 2021-11-13.


Most of these modules provide a Getopt::Long-compatible interface, but they differ in some aspect: either they offer more features (or less).



What is an Acme::CPANModules::* module?

An Acme::CPANModules::* module, like this module, contains just a list of module names that share a common characteristics. It is a way to categorize modules and document CPAN. See Acme::CPANModules for more details.

What are ways to use this Acme::CPANModules module?

Aside from reading this Acme::CPANModules module's POD documentation, you can install all the listed modules (entries) using cpanm-cpanmodules script (from App::cpanm::cpanmodules distribution):

 % cpanm-cpanmodules -n PERLANCAR::MyGetoptLongExperiment

Alternatively you can use the cpanmodules CLI (from App::cpanmodules distribution):

    % cpanmodules ls-entries PERLANCAR::MyGetoptLongExperiment | cpanm -n

or Acme::CM::Get:

    % perl -MAcme::CM::Get=PERLANCAR::MyGetoptLongExperiment -E'say $_->{module} for @{ $LIST->{entries} }' | cpanm -n

or directly:

    % perl -MAcme::CPANModules::PERLANCAR::MyGetoptLongExperiment -E'say $_->{module} for @{ $Acme::CPANModules::PERLANCAR::MyGetoptLongExperiment::LIST->{entries} }' | cpanm -n

This Acme::CPANModules module also helps lcpan produce a more meaningful result for lcpan related-mods command when it comes to finding related modules for the modules listed in this Acme::CPANModules module. See App::lcpan::Cmd::related_mods for more details on how "related modules" are found.

To contribute, you can send patches by email/via RT, or send pull requests on GitHub.

Most of the time, you don't need to build the distribution yourself. You can simply modify the code, then test via:

 % prove -l

If you want to build the distribution (e.g. to try to install it locally on your system), you can install Dist::Zilla, Dist::Zilla::PluginBundle::Author::PERLANCAR, and sometimes one or two other Dist::Zilla plugin and/or Pod::Weaver::Plugin. Any additional steps required beyond that are considered a bug and can be reported to me.
