in thread CGI.pm and HTML5

Yes I would love to use more modern modules to do this but I'm a bit constrained by the environment I have to work in. None of those modules are installed. Its a fairly vanilla Perl 5.8.8 installation

    I just installed Dancer on an old Solaris system with 5.8.8, no issues.

      I'm not disputing it is possible to install better modules, I am disputing that getting through the company bureaucracy to get extra modules installed will take longer than the two weeks I have left on my contract.

      You have no idea!! :-) I'm a consultant on a short term contract, and whilst it wasn't my brief I wrote a plan to upgrade their applications {partly in the hope they'd extend my contract :-) }. They're still running Firefox 3 for goodness sake...

[ambrus]: choroba: heh heh... I have such a doc bug report somewhere. fixed by now.
[Corion]: Once upon a time I had automatic tests for checking the synopsis, but I stopped doing that because the setup was too fragile on CPAN testers for extracting code from the SYNOPSIS.
[Corion]: Maybe I should move the extraction of the code from the SYNOPSIS section into the author tests, or something like that...
[choroba]: Corion Sounds reasonable
[Corion]: choroba: Yeah - I basically have the same for regenerating README and README.mkdown already, except that I do that in Makefile.PL, but I guess one or the other thing should somehow work ;)
[ambrus]: was this bug: https://rt.cpan. org/Public/Bug/ Display.html?id= 59814
[Corion]: ambrus: Oh - that one would be much harder to automate... The SYNOPSIS section should mostly be a runnable program IMO, but I write only small snippets in my documentation for single functions/methods, and creating the appropriate environment for ...
