I would normally have no idea, since I don't do Perl programming, but since I
was recently looking at /usr/bin/rename (which, on Debian unstable, is a Perl
script), I give you this snippet:

use strict;

use Getopt::Long;

my ($verbose, $no_act, $force, $op);

die "Usage: rename [-v] [-n] [-f] perlexpr [filenames]\n"
    unless GetOptions(
	'v|verbose' => \$verbose,
	'n|no-act'  => \$no_act,
	'f|force'   => \$force,
    ) and $op = shift;

I think that might answer your question.
