San Lorenzo was fifty miles long and twenty miles wide, I learned from
the supplement to the New York Sunday Times. Its population was four
hundred, fifty thousand souls, "...all fiercely dedicated to the ideals
of the Free World."
Its highest point, Mount McCabe, was eleven thousand feet above sea
level. Its capital was Bolivar, "...a strikingly modern city built on a
harbor capable of sheltering the entire United States Navy." The principal
exports were sugar, coffee, bananas, indigo, and handcrafted novelties.

I'm pleased to announce the second release candidate for Perl 5.12.1.
Shortly, you should be able to download it from your favorite CPAN
mirror or from:
The changes from RC1 are relatively tiny, but I'd appreciate it
if folks would put RC2 through its paces.
If no regressions are reported, I plan to release a nearly-identical
tarball as Perl 5.12.1 on Sunday, May 16th.
