[marioroy]: Is List::Util::XS a core Perl module?
[stevieb]: corelist List::Util::XS says "List::Util::XS was first released with perl v5.10.1"
[stevieb]: so yes, since v5.10.1 :)
[MidLifeXis]: According to [metaperl:// corelist], Perl 5.10.1
Lady_Aleena blurbles. One of her favorite modiles is now in "maintenance mode" in favor of a new fangled module.
[MidLifeXis]: D'oh. Slow out of the gate.
[marioroy]: Thanks stevieb, MidLifeXis.
