in reply to Why upgrade perl?

IMO

If you have to ask :) it isn't worth it :)

Don't worry about new syntax ... not that important, but bug fixes, esp regarding threads are

The other thing is increasingly improved unicode support

This brings you up to perl-5.14.4, or perl-5.16.3

If you're thinking you need some of the fancy new regex features, you don't, all you need is marpa scanless

[marto]: and not long ago it wasn't feasible for anyone really to create a finger print of all known music to compare samples against...
[marto]: if you're living in the cloud, you're going to get rained on :P
[Veltro]: feasible in the sense of 'making money'?
[marto]: if your app just calls a remote or third party service to do the task, you app does not 'do the task', it's just a messenger
[marto]: in the sense that for various values of "a while ago" it would not have been possible (and arguable still isn't) to have a fingerprint of every piece of commercially released music to compare against.
[marto]: a co-worker refers to the late 1980s as "a while ago"
[Veltro]: Like I said before, I ment the solution as a whole
[Veltro]: People thought it was not possible.
[marto]: and until recently it wasn't and arguable (for some samples) probably isn't
