    Hrm, it didn't quite post the way I wanted it to, sorry about the bad formatting. Says its maintained by me, but there's nowhere to change the content.
      Whoop, I guess it worked. Nebbermind.

    does this not work any more, or do I have something wrong with my perl install? lacrymology@Optimus:~$ ./listen syntax error at ./listen line 26, near "not," Execution of ./listen aborted due to compilation errors.
      It doesn't work for me on:
      This is perl, v5.8.9 built for x86_64-linux

      I get the same error as you do. Your perl install is probably fine. This poem may never have compiled. It does compile when I delete the comma after "not".

[Discipulus]: yes marto I understood
[Corion]: Discipulus: I'm slowly migrating my code to require 5.8.x ;) Most of my code works on 5.6, but Filter::signatures requires 5.10 I think
[Corion]: 5.14 is also a good target, widely available and fairly stable. Also, over five years old, which doesn't push people into a needless upgrade cycle
[Discipulus]: yes I saw your efforts Corion but the pain is worth?
[Corion]: Discipulus: IMO it's not that much pain, but most of the systems I use have a Perl 5.14 or newer on them nowadays
[marto]: the question is more, is Padre still the way new users should be directed?
[Discipulus]: ah ah I have all 5.26 atm but I play alone..
[Corion]: Except this RHEL box, which comes with Perl 5.10.1 , but there I installed my own 5.20.3 for the real Perl programs we run ;)
[Corion]: marto: I used Padre for some time but then switched to Notepad++, since all the funky features I wanted to put into Padre couldn't be made to work, and/or I lost interest :)
[Discipulus]: indeed marto I dunno. I tested once and many years ago. But I'm not the programmer yardstick. I try to install Padre via cpan now just to add a line about it in the issue. Strawberryperl all life long!

    Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
