( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Some listed in the rpmfind link below, also you can find tons of distros at ibiblio.org. Searching provides some info but is too much, you will probably need to either manually search it or build some scanner for directory listings. Possibly you could cross-reference what version of perl came out with when a distro came out for an upper bound?

rpmfind
search for perl at ibiblio

Here's some others I found there just for starters..

Arch Linux 0.5 (2003.3.19) perl 5.8.0
Ark Linux 1.0-0.alpha.6 (2003.1.20) perl 5.8.0
Dragon Linux 2.1.0 (2000.7.18) perl 5.6.0
EnGarde Linux 1.0.1 (2001.4.16) perl 5.6.0
Yellow Dog Linux 2.3 (2002.6.20) perl 5.6.0
Yellow Dog Linux 3.0 (2003.3.17) perl 5.8.0

P.S. I wonder if some distros' perl rpms run faster than others.

    [GotToBTru]: I
    [GotToBTru]: ve been looking at a document we have been sending to a customer for years now
    [MidLifeXis]: We don't, at least in this case ;-)
    [GotToBTru]: and it includes a reference number that I didnt recognize
    [GotToBTru]: I had to dig into the code to find out where it came from .. and it makes no sense
    [GotToBTru]: so I emailed my contact asking if we could just stop sending it .. I'm afraid she is going to ask "what is that anyway?"
    [MidLifeXis]: heh.
    [MidLifeXis]: Most likely it is a code that some undocumented system, hidden behind layers of IT, deep in the bowels of the building under the machine room floor, reads that code to keep a presence switch from going off. :-b
