Greetings Folks,
Not sure if this is a SOPW question or a meditation, but after having it suggested by a saint for here, I will go with SOPW.I did a Super Search and didn't find anything really related to this old versus 5.6 mostly (5.6 versus 6)
I just installed debian's potatoe image on my system at home. It comes default with perl 5.00503. I have always used perl 5.6 so far in my brief perl career. What are the differences? I know local acts a little differently between the two. I just am looking for any screwy behaviors to be aware of before I write something that "I know is correct" only to have it flake out when I change perl versions
Any comments/suggestions here will probably save me hours of anguish. {grin}
