Why 5.005_02? because thats what showed at gnu.org at the time. I've gone to
the perl site and will give 5.005_03 a whirl.

I had a slight difficulty in choosing the URL to include. Ideally it
should lead somewhere which says authoritatively "Latest is 5.005_03".
The only authoritative source is CPAN; on CPAN this information is only

and including that would be self-defeating. And also, if you do try
to look at that, you get a really exciting blank page. Should there
be a file somewhere (e.g. at http://www.perl.com/CPAN/src/latest )
which contains just that statement?
Such as the http://www.perl.com/CPAN/src/latest.tar.gz and
http://www.perl.com/CPAN/src/latest.zip, explained in
http://www.perl.com/CPAN/src/README...?
