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 1.19 - 1998-09-29

  • put VMS gettimeofday() in. Patch is from Sebastian Bazley <>
  • change GIMME_V to GIMME to help people with older versions of Perl.
  • fix Win32 version of gettimeofday(). It didn't affect anything, but it confuses people reading the code when the return value is backwards (0 is success).
  • fix Makefile.PL (more) so that detection of gettimeofday is more correct.
