[Tanktalus]: ww: your parens don't line up. Sure, perl can look like line noise, but the parens still have to line up. ;)
[Tux]: 1nickt did you build 5.24.3, 5.26.1, and 5.27.4 yet?
Tux now has 284 working versions of perl
[1nickt]: Tux oh yes, have filed reports from them already :-)
1nickt has 44 for one version of one OS ...
[Tux]: good boy :)
[1nickt]: Had to beat on things for a bit to get cpanminus working on 5.8.9, and it just would not go on 5.6.2, so I abndoned that one for cpanm-reporter work. I mean realistically how many people are using 5.6.2 on OS X ? :-/
[Tux]: those 284 are all on my laptop (Linux x64)
[Tanktalus]: Hmm, I only have 26 on my machine... :P
[Tanktalus]: mind you, I don't generally keep the odd-numbered dev releases.
