in reply to Storable: Byte order is not compatible

Hmm, seems to work for me (perl 5.6.1 and 5.8.0)
$Storable::VERSION = 2.08 $DB_File::VERSION = 1.805 $DB_File::db_ver = 4.001025

MJD says "you can't just make shit up and expect the computer to know what you mean, retardo!"
I run a Win32 PPM repository for perl 5.6.x and 5.8.x -- I take requests (README).
