NAME

Pod::Perldoc::GetOptsOO - Customized option parser for Pod::Perldoc

SYNOPSIS

  1. use Pod::Perldoc::GetOptsOO ();
  2. Pod::Perldoc::GetOptsOO::getopts( $obj, \@args, $truth )
  3. or die "wrong usage";

DESCRIPTION

Implements a customized option parser used for Pod::Perldoc.

Rather like Getopt::Std's getopts:

  • Call Pod::Perldoc::GetOptsOO::getopts($object, \@ARGV, $truth)
  • Given -n, if there's a opt_n_with, it'll call $object->opt_n_with( ARGUMENT ) (e.g., "-n foo" => $object->opt_n_with('foo'). Ditto "-nfoo")
  • Otherwise (given -n) if there's an opt_n, we'll call it $object->opt_n($truth) (Truth defaults to 1)
  • Otherwise we try calling $object->handle_unknown_option('n') (and we increment the error count by the return value of it)
  • If there's no handle_unknown_option, then we just warn, and then increment the error counter

The return value of Pod::Perldoc::GetOptsOO::getopts is true if no errors, otherwise it's false.
