Modern Getopt for Command Line Processing

A session at YAPC::NA 2011

Tuesday 28th June, 2011

4:40pm to 5:00pm (EST)

Getopt modules, such as Getopt::Long, are used for processing command line options. There are over sixty Getopt modules on CPAN, which can be intimidating to select from. This talk will highlight some of the Getopt pearls that have been released in the past few years. Both beginners to command line processing and seasoned command line mungers who want to catch up with modern Getopt are welcome.
