I am running my Perl code with some input options. Everything run fine but at the end the code halts and it says

'\dir1\dir2\' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.

Open in new window

The command that I am running is something like this:

perl \some\directory\mytool -f somefile -verbose -reportloc \dir1\dir2\

Open in new window

and this is how I define-reportloc option in GetOptions:

'reportloc=s' => \$reportLocation,

Open in new window

If I hit Ctrl+c then it exits the program just fine. But why does it hang there?
