  Hiya brer itodd,
First off, welcome to the Monastery, and thanks for sharing your perlish efforts.   8^)

A couple thoughts come to mind, yo.   You'll likely get more+better response by including your Lily code in the post itself rather than offsite-linking to it.   Within <code> tags and after a <readmore> tag, and without syntax highlighting too, as it doesn't play friendly with the different Monastery color themes.   Not a big huge hairy deal, rather a courtesy to all the fine monks.

If you send a private /msg to one or two of the editors, they'd probably let you update your post thusly.

Re: the code itself:   I don't pretend to be any kind of expert perler to critique, but one thing comes to mind - "The Dynamic Duo --or-- Holy Getopt::Long, Pod::UsageMan!" might could do some nice for the Usage and Arguments sections near the top.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
