PERLHIST(1)	       Perl Programmers Reference Guide 	   PERLHIST(1)



NAME
       perlhist - the Perl history records

DESCRIPTION
       This document aims to record the Perl source code releases.

INTRODUCTION
       Perl history in brief, by Larry Wall:

	   Perl 0 introduced Perl to my officemates.
	   Perl 1 introduced Perl to the world, and changed /\(...\|...\)/ to
	       /(...|...)/.  \(Dan Faigin still hasn't forgiven me. :-\)
	   Perl 2 introduced Henry Spencer's regular expression package.
	   Perl 3 introduced the ability to handle binary data (embedded nulls).
	   Perl 4 introduced the first Camel book.  Really.  We mostly just
	       switched version numbers so the book could refer to 4.000.
	   Perl 5 introduced everything else, including the ability to
	       introduce everything else.

THE KEEPERS OF THE PUMPKIN
       Larry Wall, Andy Dougherty, Tom Christiansen, Charles Bailey, Nick
       Ing-Simmons, Chip Salzenberg, Tim Bunce, Malcolm Beattie, Gurusamy
       Sarathy, Graham Barr, Jarkko Hietaniemi, Hugo van der Sanden, Michael
       Schwern, Rafael Garcia-Suarez, Nicholas Clark, Richard Clamp, Leon Bro-
       card.

       PUMPKIN?

       [from Porting/pumpkin.pod in the Perl source code distribution]

       Chip Salzenberg gets credit for that, with a nod to his cow orker,
       David Croy.  We had passed around various names (baton, token, hot
       potato) but none caught on.  Then, Chip asked:

       [begin quote]

	  Who has the patch pumpkin?

       To explain:  David Croy once told me once that at a previous job, there
       was one tape drive and multiple systems that used it for backups.  But
       instead of some high-tech exclusion software, they used a low-tech
       method to prevent multiple simultaneous backups: a stuffed pumpkin.  No
       one was allowed to make backups unless they had the "backup pumpkin".

       [end quote]

       The name has stuck.  The holder of the pumpkin is sometimes called the
       pumpking (keeping the source afloat?) or the pumpkineer (pulling the
       strings?).

       The "core"..."doc" mean the following files from the Perl source code
       distribution.  The glob notation ** means recursively, (.) means regu-
       lar files.

	core   *.[hcy]
	lib    lib/**/*.p[ml]
	ext    ext/**/*.{[hcyt],xs,pm}
	t      t/**/*(.) (for 1-5.005_56) or **/*.t (for 5.6.0-5.7.3)
	doc    {README*,INSTALL,*[_.]man{,.?},pod/**/*.pod}

       Here are some statistics for the other subdirectories and one file in
       the Perl source distribution for somewhat more selected releases.

       SELECTED PATCH SIZES

       The "diff lines kb" means that for example the patch 5.003_08, to be
       applied on top of the 5.003_07 (or whatever was before the 5.003_08)
       added lines for 110 kilobytes, it removed lines for 19 kilobytes, and
       changed lines for 424 kilobytes.  Just the lines themselves are
       counted, not their context.  The "+ - !" become from the diff(1) con-
       text diff output format.
