Great suggestions, jeffa.

Don't forget that MacPerl is a 'Classic' application, meant for MacOS 9.x and earlier. See the thread, MacPerl for more on the subject. MacOS X fits in with your Unix/Linux statement - it is BSD-based, and it ships with Perl 5.6.0 installed.

Don't get me wrong - MacPerl is great! Were it not for MacPerl a few years ago, I'd never have started learning Perl.

Beyond that, I'd second cjf's thoughts at Re: How do I use Perl?

[Corion]: ... those in an automated fashion seems somewhat hard to me. Although it should do wonders for the test coverage ;)
[haukex]: Corion: I once wrote an automated thingy for that here
[haukex]: here's the code that uses it
[Corion]: haukex: Hmm - maybe I can reuse that. I see that it uses Pod::Parser, which I think was one of the more fragile parsers. But if I'm statically (re)generating the tests instead of doing that "live" on the client/tester machines, that's a much smaller...
[Corion]: ... problem space than trying to cater to all versions of Pod::Parser(s)
[haukex]: I think you're right, I think Pod::Simple is the preferred parser now
