Current Perl documentation can be found at perldoc.perl.org.

Here is our local, out-dated (pre-5.6) version:

Circular lists could be handled in the traditional fashion with linked lists, or you could just do something like this with an array:

    unshift(@array, pop(@array));  # the last shall be first
    push(@array, shift(@array));   # and vice versa

[stevieb]: berrybrew has been updated with the new perl checksums. Now I'm going to implement dynamic loading of perls thanks to their new JSON releases file
