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

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?).

1013=head3 The patch-free era
1014
1015In more modern times, named releases don't come as often, and as progress
1016can be followed (nearly) instantly (with rsync, and since late 2008, git)
1017patches between versions are no longer provided. However, that doesn't
75ae21a0 1018keep us from calculating how large a patch could have been. Which is
ee4d0b42
A
1019shown in the table below. Unless noted otherwise, the size mentioned is
1020the patch to bring version x.y.z to x.y.z+1.
