  • Ever tried the 'autobundle' command of CPAN.pm?

    I'd find it very useful for upgrading modules after installing a new Perl if I weren't always installing modules just to toy with them for an hour or two =)

    As it is, I have a bundle of my own most commonly needed modules that I install post-upgrade. It's something that's quite useful if kept up to date. No more forgetting to install something some obscure program needs =)

  • Why would you need to update your modules, if you were previously running 5.8.0? All your modules for 5.8.0 should work fine for 5.8.1. There's no binary compatibility issues with this release.
    • It's possible any rpm-based install update to the original may possibly overwrite any of the core modules I've already updated myself.

      I might be wrong about this, in which case, great, no problems. However I prefer to err on the side of caution.

      Just as well I hesitated anyway since 5.8.2 followed shortly thereafter. :>

      Been too darn busy to deal with it yet, so I haven't even gone searching for the packages as of this date. heh.
