Old versions are easy to find. What do you mean by "a repository"? Just a location where the distribution tar-balls are available or a location that has binary packages for your system?

Also note that old(er) versions of perl are not easy to build/compile on recent machines with recent operation systems. Of course there is Devel::PatchPerl, but manual intervention might be needed to get to something that works.

The only good reason I see for keeping (or even building) old(er) versions of perl is that you want to test your distribution to all supported versions of perl that you claim to support. That is why I have over 200 versions of perl on a USB disk. (perl2 is not one of them, perl1 is :)

Enjoy, Have FUN! H.Merijn

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.
