A program should be light and agile, its subroutines connected like a string of pearls. The spirit and intent of the program should be retained throughout. There should be neither too little or too much, neither needless loops nor useless variables, neither lack of structure nor overwhelming rigidity." - The Tao of Programming, 4.1 - Geoffrey James

    [Corion]: Hmm - I would say the 5.8.5 is a broken installation / corrupt tarball download, and the 5.10.0 is really weird, and maybe a bug in that version of Perl
    [Corion]: I don't see how my $result = eval q{'abc' =~ ?b?}; could create a "Modification of read-only value" error
    [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
