in reply to When did perl change /bin wrappers?

It's not clear what you mean. The installer for development releases of perl (and release versions of perl built with -Dusedevel) install any binaries and script with the version number appended. On top of that you may have 3rd party install wrappers such as perlbrew, and OS vendors may also rename things they add to /usr/bin. I'm not aware of any changes to the way corelist is installed by perl itself.

    Thank you Dave! Your reply answers many questions I couldn't find documented. Apple still ships Perl 5.18 and the binaries are the same wrapper script while the actual program has a version number appended (e.g. corelist5.18). The wrapper comments say something vague about multiple version support but I use perlbrew of course. Thanks again.
