[PATCH: perl@11328] informational tweaks to perl572delta.pod
Message ID:
Pine.OSF.4.10.10107121633340.219875-100000@aspara.forte.com

I see that since last week there have been a few modifications to
perl572delta.pod.  While I wish I could keep all the stray bits together
while trying to fix test failures I thought it might be helpful to send in
these updates before attempting to fix any remaining test failure reports
in order to ensure that these "informational tweaks" at least made it in
before the imminent release.  Thanks.
