    That's why I default to 5.10.0. I just can't see the benefit of requiring 5.12.4. Even if were really keen on 5.12 features, I'd use use 5.012;. The only time I would write use 5.12.4; if the program needs a bugfix that happened between 5.12.3 and 5.12.4.
      It's something my teacher did, so I kind of copied. If I ever use a newer version of Perl, I will write 5.x.x
