Perl 5.004_03

[ #6184 ]

Similar to the Sapphire search, does anyone have Perl 5.004_03 sources?

CPAN doesn't go back that far, and BackPAN doesn't go forward that far. I'm curious because the installed version here at work has a problem with glob, but the sources are nowhere to be found.

  • Works by CPANID so if you do 'perldoc perlhist' to find the pumpkin of that release, find the CPANID and then cruise BACKPAN for the tarball of that perl. 5.004_03 [] was the job of Tim Bunce, so you look under TIMB and voila  :)

    • There used to be something that I think was called "Oasis" that had lots of old versions of Perl, even going back to 1.0. It used to be linked to from's download section. It's probably a good thing that it's not anymore, but does anyone know where it is?

      J. David works really hard, has a passion for writing good software, and knows many of the world's best Perl programmers
    • Ah! I'd looked in the 'src' directory (where on CPAN the 5.004_04+ versions are linked).

      Thanks! (Now all we need is for jdavidb to find Sapphire =) )
