in thread Summary of salient changes to Perl 5 between the major releases?
Thanks for the links, daxim.
I should've been more specific: I'm more interested in the major modern changes and additions since 5.8. Sorry for not being specific enough.
Some examples of what I'd like to know:
- When was given/when added?
- When was smart match added?
- Have there been any pragmas added which, when used, deprecate older less-recommended features?
And the biggest, which I was unable to articulate until just now: What do the "use 5.$X" pragmas get me? Which features do they enable/disable?
Thanks so much!
