( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

That really isn’t “trolls.”   The OP does not say exactly how he went about switching Perl versions (and then, apparently, switching back ...) but it nevertheless is true that there’s a lot of package-interdependency and, within almost each and every package, a fairly substantial chunk of XS (that is, “C[++]”) code.   Including, maybe, stuff that talks to the Perl interpreter’s perlguts.   If there should happen to be any sort of mismatch or incompatibility there ... well, it might cause a binary-explosion or ... it might not.   What it certainly could cause is, “it works in one version of Perl (on my computer, as I am running it) but not the other (ditto).”   I frankly would not expect that differences between the two Perls, e.g. at a language/syntax level, would be the root-cause, i-f the package in question (taken by itself) has been certified against that version.   It rings true to me.
