Using %^H in Perl 5.8.x?
Message ID:
G'day p5p,

My understanding is that %^H is considered stable in Perl 5.10, but I can't 
hope but notice that %^H also exists in 5.8, but is marked as experimental.

* Am I correct that %^H in 5.8 works the same as %^H in 5.10?

* Can I assume that %^H will no longer be considered experimental
   in 5.8.9 ?

* Are there any gotchas with regards to %^H in 5.8 that don't
   exist in 5.10?

I'd love to have a release of autodie[1] that works in 5.8, but I can only 
do this if I can depend upon a working %^H.

Many thanks,

that I'd spent more than one week in the same city and it's taken me a while 
to recover from the shock.
