I've been reading chromatic "Modern Perl 2011-2012 edition" -- thank you chromatic! So in deciding to take the advice at the very beginning of the book, I added
use Modern::Perl 2011;
as stated, this translates to:
use 5.012; # implies "use strict;"
Seems reasonable. I'm use
ing 5.12.5, and I always
But after adding that line, I receive the following error in a script that never complained before:
Modern::Perl version 2011 required--this is only version 1.03
I'll reaquaint myself with the Modern::Perl docs. But just thought I'd mention it here, as it is quite unexpected.
Thank you for all your time, and consideration.
my $perl_version = "5.12.5";
