in reply to Solaris, Perl 5.8 and use 5.005

There are two things here - one, generally about upgrading perl, and people already covered that.

And another one - writing new app for a platform, and you can solve that by using PAR, create your app, and then compile it to elf file that you can safely run on your target solaris server.

This is a great way for packing apps without touching target system, I do that even if on target platform there already is modern perl available - this way the problem of installing myriad of required modules is solved in one place.

This will work as long as you're not using Gtk,
