Perl "stable" is now v. 5.8.2
Authored by: blakers on Nov 14, '03 01:25:27PM
thanks! for the 'heads-up'!

jeez, when I originally compiled/posted this, it still *was* 5.8.1 -- a guy just can't keep up :-)

as for perl 5.8.2, i just DL'd the latest stable release, and rebuilt the instructions mentioned here.

everything seems to work identically, except of course changing the instances of "5.8.1" to "5.8.2" in the perl build.

for ref, here's the "perl -V" & "make test" output with the new version build:
