  • I don't know if they specify specifically 5.8.4, but the word on street is that if you want to use unicode, it wasn't acting sane until 5.8.4.

    The big 5.8 thing in Perl::MinimumVersion is also "use utf8;". So given the diversity of applications it supports, unicode would seem an obvious one.

    Hang on a second.... there's a better way of doing this. perlver to the rescue!

    • Funny you should mention Perl::MinimumVersion, as I would liked to have used it. Its another that is on my list with dependency failures. Unfortunately Test::SubCalls is failing the same tests as imacat's report [perl.org], except mine fails on Windows, Perl 5.6.1.

      I have been doing the checking by hand previously and noting to the authors that it really does work for 5.6.1, however I had planned to write something that can do that (using Perl::MinimumVersion) to check a distribution as soon as it produces a NA report on cpan-testing. It'll then be a filter to CPAN-YACSmoke to only report to the author. There are no official 5.6.1 testers at the moment, and so it is likely to be only me sending them for now :)
