in thread Why upgrade perl?

I feel that it's an overstatement to say that a too-old version of perl will "often" cause problems when installing CPAN modules, given my own experience that such problems are extremely rare, with the one exception of pre-5.10 perl vs. post-5.10 modules. It's interesting to see that your experience has been the opposite and that makes me wonder which is actually the more common set of experiences.
