[ID 20000330.055] "perl 5.005, patch 03" perldoc banner
Message ID:

This is a bug report for perl from joseph@dixie.cscaper.com,
generated with the help of perlbug 1.28 running under perl v5.6.0.


-----------------------------------------------------------------
[Please enter your report here]

The banners (at least the ones I've noticed) on my 5.6.0 man
pages say

  23/Mar/2000            perl 5.005, patch 03                     1

when I read them with perldoc.

I wonder if this is occurring because somewhere in the chain of
subprograms being run by perldoc, the wrong perl is being called.
My feeling has always been that the various perl utilities should
use the perl that is running them (via Config presumably), not one 
that might be found somewhere in the path.  Same for calling other 
perl utilities.

I'm invoking the correct perl and perldoc at the start:

 /usr/local/devel/perl-longlong/bin/perldoc perl

or 

 /usr/local/devel/perl-longlong/bin/perldoc pod/perl.pod

I'm not quite sure where it's going awry.
