in reply to Updgrading to ActivePerl 5.16

I'd be interested in reading where 5.12 is no longer granted access to ActiveStates PPM. Have you considered not using ActiveState and opting for one of the alternatives such as Strawberry Perl?

You can add:

use 5.012;

to your code to only enable perl 5.12 features even though your running a later version of perl. See use VERSION. That said obviously you want to run your test suite/test procedures to ensure that there are no issues. Backward compatibility and depreciation may be of interest.

Update: fixed typo.

    Looks like ActiveState is now allowing mainly the latest version of their community ActivePerl access to PPM repositories. More details given here: http://community.activestate.com/node/9565

      Thanks, very interesting. I guess users of versions effected can still use the unofficial repositories, and of course cpan ;)
