Thanks for your response. Version strings are not covered/documented in any of my programming Perl books so no wonder I couldn't find any information about them. It's time to get the latest Perl book!

    AFAICT, they first showed up in the 3rd Edition Camel as "V-String Literals" and in the 4th ed as "Version Literals".

    And by the way, welcome to the Monastery!

    I have the fourth edition of the Camel (February 2012), and v-string is defined on page 1080. :)
