in reply to Anyone here using Linux Mint?

Can I take the perl and bash scripts written on Linux Mint and use them on the RHEL 5.8?

I bet that the newer version of mint provides perl 5.14, as Debian stable, unstable and Sid. (You can even have a bomb... err package... for Debian with perl 5.18). I think that RHEL provides perl 5.8.8 (I could be wrong) So, probably not all perl scripts from mint will work in RH.

UPDATED: confirmed, Linux mint from Maya (13) to Olivia (num 15; newest): perl 5.14.2, same as Debian

Old Linux mint versions from 1 to 5 provide perl 5.8.8. You could start playing with these as source of perl scripts supposedly compatible with your Redhat

    That's strange advice. It's probably discontinued years ago an unsupported.

    OP has a choice - either read perldoc time-to-time to check perl compatibility and check module compatibility (check Make/Build.PL scripts), or install RHEL family (for example CentOS 5.9)
