-p package
package is the name of the package you are testing. If you don't supply a value on the command line, you will be prompted for one.

For example: Test-Reporter-1.27

No comment; you will not be prompted to supply a comment about the package.
-t text
A short comment text line.
-f file
A file containing comments; '-' will make it read from STDIN. Note that an editor will still appear after reading this file.
Autosubmission (non-interactive); you won't be prompted to supply any information that you didn't provide on the command line. Implies -nc.
A list of additional email addresses that should be cc:'d in this report (typically, the package's author).
perl-version perl
An alternate version of perl on which the distribution was tested. This option allows reporting on versions of perl for which Test::Reporter is not installed.
