Re^2: Stop suggesting to upgrade perl
in thread Stop suggesting to upgrade perl
The post was about users.
Then I don't see your point at all. The vast majority of questions asked on perlmonks is from programmers, not (just) users. The very few questions by users are barely worth discussing.
Perl 5.8 supported till Y2017 in RHEL5, Perl 5.10 till Y2020
What does "supported" mean in that context? I guess there will be security updates, right? I don't quite think that Redhat will answer a user's question in 2016 on how to do proper Unicode handling with perl 5.8, will they?
