I've just tried to install Net::SSH::Perl on a Perl 5.005 computer. Having since read the change-log, this is documented as not working (so I went back to version 1.23 of Net::SSH::Perl instead, which is working fine). But it'd be nicer to have a better error message when trying to install on an older Perl -- currently running make test yields an error about weak references in Net::SSH::Perl::Packet; adding this line to the top of Net::SSH::Perl: use 5.006; would result in a more helpful error message. Cheers. Smylers
