meorero has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Nowadays - I heard - it is the 20th birthday of Perl.
Larry himself wrote:
I released Perl to the comp.sources.misc newsgroup in 1987, and that +was the end of Perl version 0.
("Uncultured Perl", published on Friday, October 15th, 1999. See: http://www.linux-mag.com/id/322 )
So...
I'm preparing a lecture about the history of Perl. I want to have a code in Perl 0 or Perl 1.0 and to compare it to a code in Perl of our days.
Does somebody have a Perl code from those early days?
Is there something I can compare to our days?

    Have you seen http://dev.perl.org/perl1/? In fact, the Perl 1 mailing list has some activity today.

    Most probably the perl 0 sources are not available, because according to the perlhist core perldocs, even its release date is classified.
