The oldest Perl I write my code to be compatible with is:

  • Perl 6 - I live on the edge!
  • Perl 5.10 - Features trump backwards compatibility.
  • Perl 5.8 - It's the largest target to hit.
  • Perl 5.6 - Change Management won't let us upgrade
  • Perl 5.0-5.5 - I'm not paranoid, I'm realistic!
  • Perl 4.0 - Have you heard about this CGI thing? Crazy!
  • Perl pre-4.0 - If I can't run it on System V, I don't need it.

[Corion]: Discipulus: Yes, but the chart gives some limits on whether it's really worth spending time for saving your time. If you gain enjoyment, automating is still great, but it doesn't save time ;)
[Discipulus]: Corion are you would able to realize such thing? O_O
[Corion]: In the same vein I have a script that automates Firefox to enter some data into another system. It's not faster than the people using the script if they were to do it manually, but they prefer not having to check the data and not having typos when ...
[Corion]: ... entering the data
[Corion]: Discipulus: I don't know whether I could really do that, but the init process itself mostly launches other processes, and the whole startup is just following a path of dependencies and making sure they are all running. Which basically is what ...
