Hi!

Final(?) version of a proposed addition to pod/perlhack.pod:

*** pod/perlhack.pod.orig       Fri Nov 17 16:05:33 2000
--- pod/perlhack.pod    Thu Dec 28 22:56:29 2000

  distribution) and setting date/time stamps of existing files to
  reflect the bleadperl status.
  
+ Note that this will not delete any files that were in '.' before
+ the rsync. Once you are sure that the rsync is running correctly,
+ run it with the --delete and the --dry-run options like this:
+ 
+  # rsync -avz --delete --dry-run rsync://ftp.linux.activestate.com/perl-current/ .
+ 
+ This will I<simulate> an rsync run that also deletes files not
+ present in the bleadperl master copy. Observe the results from
+ this run closely. If you are sure that the actual run would delete
+ no files precious to you, you could remove the '--dry-run' option.
+ 
  You can than check what patch was the latest that was applied by
  looking in the file B<.patch>, which will show the number of the
  latest patch.
