Message ID:
  The monkeys called the place their city, and pretended to despise
  the Jungle-People because they lived in the forest. And yet they
  never knew what the buildings were made for nor how to use
  them. They would sit in circles on the hall of the king's council
  chamber, and scratch for fleas and pretend to be men; or they would
  run in and out of the roofless houses and collect pieces of plaster
  and old bricks in a corner, and forget where they had hidden them,
  and fight and cry in scuffling crowds, and then break off to play up
  and down the terraces of the king's garden, where they would shake
  the rose trees and the oranges in sport to see the fruit and flowers
                                   The Jungle Book, Rudyard Kipling

This is the second release candidate for the fourth maintenance
release of Perl 5.005. Please test this thoroughly and find any issues
before the monkeys return to the tree-tops. It's available at:

This release fixes a suidperl security issue and a minor Mac OS X
Jaguar test issue. If there are no serious negative reports, then I
hope to release the real thing in a week. Maybe I'll shake the orange

Dedicated to Tanja, my monkey.
