-The Unicode support files live within the Perl installation in the
-directory
-
-    $Config{installprivlib}/unicore
-
-in Perl 5.8.0 or newer, and
-
-    $Config{installprivlib}/unicode
-
-in the Perl 5.6 series.  (The renaming to F<lib/unicore> was done to
-avoid naming conflicts with lib/Unicode in case-insensitive filesystems.)
-The main Unicode data file is F<UnicodeData.txt> (or F<Unicode.301> in
-Perl 5.6.1.)  You can find the C<$Config{installprivlib}> by
-
-    perl "-V:installprivlib"
-
 You can explore various information from the Unicode data files using
 the C<Unicode::UCD> module.
