Description Steven Pritchard 2004-11-23 19:32:04 UTC
Description of problem:
/usr/lib/rpm/perl.req doesn't handle a line like this properly:

  use v5.6.0;

This is valid perl (at least since 5.6.0) and is easy to support with
the attached patch.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Marking as EasyFix for submitter

Comment 6 Ville Skyttä 2005-06-15 16:22:57 UTC
Looks sane to me. 
BTW, stuff around the patch to rpm would benefit from updating for Perl 5.8 
(Epoch: 2 and/or 3, don't remember where it was bumped) as well as possibly 
converting underscores to dots (somehow?) in the emitted version. 

Comment 7 Jeff Johnson 2005-11-02 19:09:53 UTC
Checked into rpm CVS, should be in rpm-4.4.3-0.32 when built.
