That's very possible, I'll check the archives... Hmm.. the search is
offline.. My cursory examination of the last three months doesn't show it,
but that doesn't mean it's not there. Do you remember why?

In any case, 5.6 isn't going to go away, it's the real perl. :)

And, try to install a CVS version of the gimp with the perl extentions
using a stock red hat install and you'll see what I mean. I'm not a perl
expert by any means, so I usually just quit poking at it and install a new
perl (which always fixes things.)
