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

Surely it's because there is a lack of resources to support it. I'm sure they would support it if they could.

It doesn't mean that Perl won't run on NT4. It doesn't mean that fixes for NT4 will be ignored.

It means they have no way of knowing whether NT4 is broken or they don't currently have the means to fix it if it does break.


There is another possibility: Dropping support for NT4 will allow them to simplify code by using features introduced in a newer OS.

It may be possible to emulate those features in NT4, but if so, noone has indicated the capability and will to do so.

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.
