Idiom #232 Read a command line boolean flag

Print "verbose is true" if the flag -v was passed to the program command line, "verbose is false" otherwise.

print("verbose is ${args.contains("-v")}");
import "flag"
var verbose = flag.Bool("v", false, "verbose")
flag.Parse()
fmt.Println("verbose is", *verbose)
const verbose = process.argv.includes('-v');
console.log('verbose is', verbose);
for i in paramcount do
begin
  if paramstr(i)='-v' then 
  begin
    verbose := true;
    break;
  end;
 writeln('verbose is ',verbose);
end.
#!/usr/bin/perl -s
