( [id://3333] : superdoc . print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Because nobody is running tests for NT4. It's not that newer Perl releases won't run on NT4, but there is nobody testing the compilation of Perl on NT4, and thus it falls out of the observable universe of Perl.

For Win9x, the situation is even worse, not only is there nobody testing, but even building on Win9x is impossible due to command.com being the shell. Dropping Win9x support has the actual benefit of being able to drop some dynamic loading of API functions and thus simplifying some conditional code.

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
