in reply to What do you do with typos in the documentation?

So in the documentation you saw "use v5.10" and chose to write "use 5.10". How precisely is that the documentation's fault? You then got an error message that asks: "did you mean v5.10.0?". How do you get from that to the "documentation is telling me to use version 5 by 100!"?

    I presume he reached that conclusion because the error message begins "Perl v5.100.0 required".
