21=head1 INTRODUCTION
22
23Perl history in brief, by Larry Wall:
24
a3cb178b
GS
25 Perl 0 introduced Perl to my officemates.
26 Perl 1 introduced Perl to the world, and changed /\(...\|...\)/ to
d516a115 27 /(...|...)/. \(Dan Faigin still hasn't forgiven me. :-\)
cac726e9
NIS
28 Perl 2 introduced Henry Spencer's regular expression package.
29 Perl 3 introduced the ability to handle binary data (embedded nulls).
30 Perl 4 introduced the first Camel book. Really. We mostly just
d516a115 31 switched version numbers so the book could refer to 4.000.
cac726e9 32 Perl 5 introduced everything else, including the ability to
d516a115 33 introduce everything else.

41=head2 PUMPKIN?
42
43[from Porting/pumpkin.pod in the Perl source code distribution]
44
45Chip Salzenberg gets credit for that, with a nod to his cow orker,
46David Croy. We had passed around various names (baton, token, hot
47potato) but none caught on. Then, Chip asked:
48
49[begin quote]
50
51 Who has the patch pumpkin?
52
53To explain: David Croy once told me once that at a previous job,
54there was one tape drive and multiple systems that used it for backups.
55But instead of some high-tech exclusion software, they used a low-tech
56method to prevent multiple simultaneous backups: a stuffed pumpkin.
57No one was allowed to make backups unless they had the "backup pumpkin".
58
59[end quote]
60
61The name has stuck. The holder of the pumpkin is sometimes called
193fb0af
GS
62the pumpking (keeping the source afloat?) or the pumpkineer (pulling
63the strings?).
