Description Nalin Dahyabhai 2000-05-05 10:49:21 EDT
This works in 5.00503, but doesn't in 5.6.0:
perl -e 'use English;print "$PERL_VERSION\n";'

$PERL_VERSION is $^V, not $], starting with 5.6.0.  $^V would be 
"\x05\x06\x00" in 5.6.0 and can be printed with 
  printf "%vd\n", $PERL_VERSION; 
See perldelta(1) in 5.6.0, or perl56delta(1) in later versions.
