 =head2 Unchanged Syntactic Features
 
-{{TODO short names, clustering, etc}}
+Several features have not changed from Perl 5, including:
 
+=over 4
+
+=item *
+
+The most common options have a single-letter short name
+
+=item *
+
+Single-letter options may be clustered with the same syntax and semantics
+
+=item *
+
+Many command-line options behave similarly, such as
+  -a                                   # autosplit
+  -c                                   # check syntax
+  -e *line*                            # execute
+  -F *expression*                      # specify autosplit value
+  -h                                   # display help
+  -I *directory*[,*directory*[,...]]   # add include paths
+  -n                                   # act like awk
+  -p                                   # act like sed
+  -S                                   # search PATH for script
+  -T                                   # Taint mode
+  -v                                   # display version info
+  -V                                   # display verbose config info
