in reply to Why should I use perl 5.10?

Give me a snazzy marketing pitch on why 5.10 is better than 5.8

BTFOOM why anyone would want to downgrade from 5.8 to 5.1 :

<sophism> C:\>perl -le "print $]; print $] < 5.8" 5.010000 1 </sophism>
Cheers,
Rob

    Using Perl 5.10 will reduce your electricity consumption by 10% and cut ur bill by 25%. Is this enough to motivate you to use Perl 5.10 ?

    I haven't upgraded yet, so...

    C:\>perl -le "print $]" 5.008008
