Description Johannes Willem (Hans) Fernhout 2020-04-04 11:08:52 UTC
If genlop is executed without parameters it gives a weird and unnecessary error message "Use of uninitialized value in concatenation (.) or string at /usr/bin/genlop line 354."

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
# genlop
Use of uninitialized value in concatenation (.) or string at /usr/bin/genlop line 354.
Usage: genlop  [options] [-f logfile] [category/package]

Options:

  -c  display the currently compiling packages (if any)
Actual Results:  
Use of uninitialized value in concatenation (.) or string at /usr/bin/genlop line 354.
Usage: genlop  [options] [-f logfile] [category/package]

Options:

  -c  display the currently compiling packages (if any)
(and more options)

Expected Results:  
Usage: genlop  [options] [-f logfile] [category/package]

Options:

  -c  display the currently compiling packages (if any)

Alternatively maybe the default parameter should be -c or --current because that might be the most common use.
