The London Perl and Raku Workshop takes place on 26th Oct 2024. If your company depends on Perl, please consider sponsoring and/or attending.

Changes for version 1.10 - 1997-05-22

  • HiRes.xs,, t/*:
    • only compile what we have OS support for (or can fake with select())
    • only test what we compiled
    • gross improvement to the test suite
    • fix EXPORT_FAIL.
    • This work was all done by Roderick Schertler <>. If you run Linux or one of the other ualarm-less platoforms, and you like this module, let Roderick know; without him, it still wouldn't be working on those boxes...
  • Makefile.PL: figure out what routines the OS has and only build what we need. These bits were written by Jarkko Hietaniemi <>. Again, gratitude is due...
