All of us have written command line scripts in Perl. This talk aims to share some insight into writing tools others can use. We'll venture down some best practices and take a peak at a few really useful modules on the CPAN and how to use them. We'll look at CLI::Helpers, a library I'm maintaining and make heavy use of on a daily basis for simplifying common tasks you and your users need.
