Wanna thank all of you.
I learned so much from my question:

1) I can use 1_00 10_00 numbers (didn't know I can do that).
2) I learned about a new module: Benchmark (shame on me...thought Gabor used
it literally)

Your humble uneducated (yet) and well known with my bizarre 
     questions of knowledge as a perl programmer.

This is perl-5.10.0 too:

shlomi:~$ which perl
shlomi:~$ rpm -qf /usr/bin/perl

Maybe the Mandriva patches affect it somewhat. I can test it with other
I compiled myself, but not sure how important it is.
