in reply to Windows type needs to set up Linux with Perl 5.8.1 to match PAUSE

Here is where you find old perls:

http://www.cpan.org/src/5.0/

This page is pretty helpful too:

http://www.cpan.org/src

Installing perl from source is really easy:

$ wget http://www.cpan.org/src/5.0/perl-5.8.1.tar.gz $ tar -zxf perl-5.8.1.tar.gz $ cd perl-5.8.1 $ sh Configure -de -Dprefix=/opt/perl-5.8.1 $ make $ make install $ export PATH="/opt/perl-5.8.1/bin:$PATH"

Now you have a throwaway perl in /opt/perl-5.8.1.
