( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

No one suggested my eventual "solution," so it is probably wrong. :(

I realized just because the servers have 5.6 on them doesn't mean that something like 5.14 or even 5.20 can't be installed and run on them. So I installed perlbrew and told the person who needs to run the script to use have perlbrew use perl 5.18 to run the script. Other than some major annoyances with setting up perlbrew, it seems to be working well enough.

If I did have to write something to run on the older Perls, I really like the ideas put forth by Athanasius and Corion. Also I guess BrowserUk came the closest with the "Don't do it" answer.

Thanks again for the help

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
