Thanks Ofer and Yuval.

Ok, I'll do so.

>2. Upgrade your Perl
I would love to get the Sys Admin. guys to do this. The first question that
my manager will ask me is:
"Are you really sure that our legacy Perl code will continue to run
correctly on this new version of Perl?"

I think that there must be backward compatibility - at least within Perl 5,
right?

Also - which version of Perl do you recommend we should upgrade to?


Thirdly, I need to give some sound reasons - is there a Perl advocacy page
somewhere which has the advantages of upgrading within Perl 5?


Thanks,
Srikanth Madani
