There have already been comments made about the stability of 5.6, so I won't discuss it. On the production boxes at my work, most of our code runs under 5.0053, but some of it takes advantage of newer 5.6 features. Red Hat (by default) installs perl in the /usr hierarchy. So I've been compiling 5.6 by hand, and configuring it with:

./configure --prefix=/usr/local/

Then /usr/bin/perl and /usr/local/bin/perl are 2 totally different things. Red Hat will complain if you try to update the perl rpm, since so much other software depends on perl being installed. So I'd reccommend this route. I mean, you will have 2 copies of core::* installed, but you're still not talking about as much space as Netscape Communicator takes up :-)

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
