  • About being a developer ... the project asks for the programs to be runnable under version 5.004_04.

    Well, that is just too ancient for me. Now, if the minimum version be 5.6, if not 5.8, that would be a different thing.

    • To elaborate on what Dave said, you shouldn't see your not having a 5.004_4 Perl as a barrier to joining the NMS development team, the programs are generally tested on multiple versions of Perl before being released and the admin doing the release will make any last minute fixes required if necessary. We appreciate that it might be a bit tricky for some people to get an older Perl on their computer.

      If I get a minute I will add a note regarding the differences between current versions of Perl and 5.004_04 to the project documentation.
