  • Ping me whenever you find out more. I'm interested in the PITA projet, but from the standpoint of upgrading perl. We're at 5.6.0 at work, and I'd like to put together two builds, our current and target, inside virtual machines to give us more of a piece of mind than upgrade and scramble to fix what breaks like we've done in the past.


  • I don't think you have to feel too guilty about not getting it to work on pre-5.6 Perl. Of my CPAN modules, the only one where I've tried to make it pre-5.6-compatible is ExtUtils::ModuleMaker -- and there only because I took over maintenance from its original author. Places that are still running pre-5.6 are, IMHO, likely to be as skeptical about installing new CPAN modules as they are about upgrading Perl -- so they would be unlikely to install Sub::Exporter for production purposes in any event.


  • we in SpamAssassin chose to move from 5.6.0 as our lowest-baseline, to 5.6.1 -- 5.6.0 has some messy UTF-8 bugs, whereas at least 5.6.1 seems mostly working. 5.005, now, that is pretty hard to support in 2006 ;)
