perldelta - what is new for perl v5.8.2
This document describes differences between the 5.8.1 release and the 5.8.2 release.
If you find what you think is a bug, you might check the articles recently posted to the comp.lang.perl.misc newsgroup and the perl bug database at http://bugs.perl.org/. There may also be information at http://www.perl.com/, the Perl Home Page.
If you believe you have an unreported bug, please run the perlbug program included with your release. Be sure to trim your bug down to a tiny but sufficient test case. Your bug report, along with the output of
perl -V, will be sent off to email@example.com to be analysed by the Perl porting team. You can browse and search the Perl 5 bugs at http://bugs.perl.org/
