Perl 5.12.3 Available Now

  • January 27, 2011
  • By Developer.com Staff

The fourth stable release of Perl 5.12.3 is now available.

"This release contains minor bug fixes and updates of several core modules," Ricardo Signes said, "as well as minor documentation updates. It should be fully backward compatible with Perl 5.12.2."

A full list of changes can be found here.

In the release announcement, Signes includes this quirky poem by Kurt Vonnegut's fictional character Howard W. Campbell Jr.

I saw a huge steam roller,
It blotted out the sun.
The people all lay down, lay down;
They did not try to run.
My love and I, we looked amazed
Upon the gory mystery.
'Lie down, lie down!' the people cried.
'The great machine is history!'
My love and I, we ran away,
The engine did not find us.
We ran up to a mountain top,
Left history far behind us.
Perhaps we should have stayed and died,
But somehow we don't think so.
We went to see where history'd been,
And my, the dead did stink so.

Howard W. Campbell, Jr.
