The /r is useful when you want to keep the original

It is indeed useful and thanks for mentioning it (++). For some reason the fact that it exists never seems to stick with me! However, in Lady_Aleena's case it might not be an option because her sig says

my perl versions are 5.28.1 local and 5.8.8 on web host.

and /r only came in at 5.13.2 (according to perlver).

As an even further aside it's a bit surprising to find anyone offering 5.8.8 as part of a service today. I am not aware of any O/S still shipping that as standard.

    That's what I was thinking...
    I'm considering upgrading from shared hosting to VPS purely so I can upgrade from 5.16.003 to something a bit more modern. Being stuck with 5.8.8 seems a bit dire.

      Your own VPS is so cheap these days, and allows the freedom to leave the past where it belongs. I'm sure you'll only have a positive experience moving forwards with this.

        Leaving shared hosting behind is definitely happening soon - the only question is whether we are going to VPS or a dedicated server.
