This is a bug report for perl from mhorsfall@dyn.com,
generated with the help of perlbug 1.39 running under perl 5.12.4.


-----------------------------------------------------------------
[Please describe your issue here]

$ perl Porting/checkAUTHORS.pl --authors /bad/file --rank gitlog
Can't locate '1'. Specify it with '--author <path>'. at
Porting/checkAUTHORS.pl line 32.

Two issues. The authors flag is treated as a flag rather than an
argument expecting a string,
and the error message incorrectly states --author instead of --authors.

Patch attached.

[Please do not change anything below this line]
