Presentation: Many modules, three Perls and one UNIX, Anton Berezin
FreeBSD ports collection is an invaluable resource offering a simple way
for users and administrators to install applications. The multitude of
Perl modules available on FreeBSD needs to work equally well with the
state-of-the-art Perl 5.8.0, with the reliable workhorse - Perl 5.6.1,
and even with the outdated Perl 5.005_03. How it is done, what problems
there are, and what the solutions are is the subject of this presentation.
Some of the material might be useful for `persuading' a 5.6-only module
to work with older perls.
