in reply to Obtaining newer version of a module now only in perl distribution

That is a common perlbug, so you should perlbug it, many don't -- if enough people perlbug-it, maybe one of the perl5porters will take it upon himself to release an official dual-lived File::stat

In the meantime, you don't have to download a whole perl, you can just grab File/stat.pm from http://perl5.git.perl.org/perl.git/tree?f=lib/File

Might want to grab some .t also :)

[moritz]: seems there's a size limit for hostenum, and the error message just sucks
[vrk]: None, other than the location of the error: auto/NetAddr/IP/ _splitref.al
[vrk]: Aha, there's a reference to "bug report 82719" in NetAddr/IP.pm's sub _splitref.
[moritz]: wow, that's their idea of an "improved error message"
[moritz]: how about "This network is too large to enumerate all host addresses." or so?
[vrk]: Well, there's a call to notcontiguous() before the error, whose description is "counts the bit positions remaining in the mask when the rightmost '0's are removed"
[vrk]: Clear as mud!
