11=head1 INTRODUCTION
12
13Perl history in brief, by Larry Wall:
14
555bd962
BG
15 Perl 0 introduced Perl to my officemates.
16 Perl 1 introduced Perl to the world, and changed /\(...\|...\)/ to
17 /(...|...)/. \(Dan Faigin still hasn't forgiven me. :-\)
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
21 switched version numbers so the book could refer to 4.000.
22 Perl 5 introduced everything else, including the ability to
23 introduce everything else.

42=for disclaimer orking cows is hazardous, and not legal in all jurisdictions
43
cac726e9

44Chip Salzenberg gets credit for that, with a nod to his cow orker,
45David Croy. We had passed around various names (baton, token, hot
46potato) but none caught on. Then, Chip asked:
47
48[begin quote]
49
50 Who has the patch pumpkin?
51
1fce104d 52To explain: David Croy once told me that at a previous job,
cac726e9
NIS
53there was one tape drive and multiple systems that used it for backups.
54But instead of some high-tech exclusion software, they used a low-tech
55method to prevent multiple simultaneous backups: a stuffed pumpkin.
56No one was allowed to make backups unless they had the "backup pumpkin".
57
58[end quote]
59
60The name has stuck. The holder of the pumpkin is sometimes called
193fb0af
GS
61the pumpking (keeping the source afloat?) or the pumpkineer (pulling
62the strings?).
