Subject: unnecessary 5.8.0 requirement ?
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 176b
Hi, version 1.20 includes a use 5.008 but it seems to run fine under 5.6.1. Is there any reason why 5.8.0 should be required or could it be removed ? Regards, Simon Wilcox.

It's only the Makefile.PL that contains this requirement; the actual module doesn't require it. When creating a new Makefile.PL the current version of Perl is put there automatically (and often wrongly), so it almost certainly wasn't intentional. Smylers
