Getopt-Easy version 0.1 ======================== Getopt::Easy is a clear and simple alternative to Getopt::Std and Getopt::Long. It also provides a usage message, an option for POD output, and a flexible debugging option. INSTALLATION To install this module on Unix and its variants, take the Getopt-Easy-0.1.tar.gz file and do the usual: % gunzip Getopt-Easy-0.1.tar.gz % tar xvf Getopt-Easy-0.1.tar % cd Getopt-Easy-0.1 % perl Makefile.PL % make % make test And assuming all went well, become super user to do the following: # make install Since this is a pure Perl module you COULD install it manually. Unzip the tar.gz file somehow and then make a Getopt subdirectory somewhere on the default search paths (see perl -V and look at the bottom for the @INC array). Then copy lib/Getopt/Easy.pm there. For example, on Win32: Use Winzip to extract the files from the tar.gz file. lib/Getopt/Easy.pm will be among them. C:> perl -V ... D:\Perl\lib D:\Perl\site\lib # make the Getopt directory: C:>md D:\Perl\site\lib\Getopt Copy lib/Getopt/Easy.pm to D:\Perl\site\lib\Getopt That's all that is needed. Then you can do: C:> perldoc Getopt::Easy And use the module however you wish. COPYRIGHT AND LICENCE Put the correct copyright and licence information here.
