Stuffy actually wrote a program that works, and does more then print "hello world"

Wow how things change


I'm a small town boy, joined the USMC, met a girl from the big city, and moved to the minneapolis area. I work for a company in an industry that is going through many layoffs. I do not program perl for a living, but I am using it at work to make my job a little easier. I am interested more in programming cgi applications. Some day my site will be run completely by cgi, when I have time that is.

[marto]: Discipulus the issue that should be adressed is that the page needs to be updated to reflect modern perl on Windows
[Discipulus]: but is really necessary to support these ancient versions? from 5.14 onward is not enough?
[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 ;)

    Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
