Hello Peter,

I had never actually done an upgrade on Redhat until the last CD fedora
5 - it has always been splicing and rebuilding (thanks to Interchange).
Fedora 5 is excellent by the way.

As a result of your emails I notice that I AM running Interchange with 
Perl 5.8.7 (/usr/local/bin/perl).

For example www.aussievitamin.com

I guess with a 2.7GHz processor and 1G RAM there could be a 30%
performance loss. There are no noticeable problems at all. (My son in NZ
says don't waste your time - your sites load fine).

I have Perl 5.8.8 at /usr/bin/perl for some reason. I guess I should get
around to replacing it with perl 5.6 and then I guess Mike's CPAN
scripts will work with that huh? ...and I can change /usr/local/bin/perl
to /usr/bin/perl in all the files in the /usr/lib/interchange/bin
directory. I'm glad when my life isn't dominated by technical issues :)
