11=head1 INTRODUCTION

13Perl history in brief, by Larry Wall:
14

GS
15 Perl 0 introduced Perl to my officemates.
16 Perl 1 introduced Perl to the world, and changed /\(...\|...\)/ to
d516a115 17 /(...|...)/. \(Dan Faigin still hasn't forgiven me. :-\)
cac726e9

18 Perl 2 introduced Henry Spencer's regular expression package.
19 Perl 3 introduced the ability to handle binary data (embedded nulls).
20 Perl 4 introduced the first Camel book. Really. We mostly just
d516a115 21 switched version numbers so the book could refer to 4.000.
cac726e9 22 Perl 5 introduced everything else, including the ability to
d516a115 23 introduce everything else.

35=head2 PUMPKIN?
36
37[from Porting/pumpkin.pod in the Perl source code distribution]
38
39Chip Salzenberg gets credit for that, with a nod to his cow orker,
40David Croy. We had passed around various names (baton, token, hot
41potato) but none caught on. Then, Chip asked:
42
43[begin quote]
44
45 Who has the patch pumpkin?
46
47To explain: David Croy once told me once that at a previous job,
48there was one tape drive and multiple systems that used it for backups.
49But instead of some high-tech exclusion software, they used a low-tech
50method to prevent multiple simultaneous backups: a stuffed pumpkin.
51No one was allowed to make backups unless they had the "backup pumpkin".
52
53[end quote]
54
55The name has stuck. The holder of the pumpkin is sometimes called
193fb0af
GS
56the pumpking (keeping the source afloat?) or the pumpkineer (pulling
57the strings?).

911=head3 The patch-free era
912
913In more modern times, named releases don't come as often, and as progress
914can be followed (nearly) instantly (with rsync, and since late 2008, git)
915patches between versions are no longer provided. However, that doesn't
916keep us from calculating how large a patch could have been. Which is
917shown in the table below. Unless noted otherwise, the size mentioned is
918the patch to bring version x.y.z to x.y.z+1.
