Subject: perl 5.18.0 is now available!
It is an error to divide people into the living and the dead:
there are people who are dead-alive, and people who are
alive-alive. The dead-alive also write, walk, speak, act. But they
make no mistakes; only machines make no mistakes, and they produce
only dead things. The alive-alive are constantly in error, in
search, in questions, in torment.
