Subject Minor patch to modperl_dev.pod
Date Tue, 24 Apr 2001 18:14:40 GMT
Well, I got mod_perl installed & tested as recommended in
modperl_dev.pod, and I thought I'd try to make it a little easier for
others. I'm not sure if I've overlooked something that would have made
it easier for me, however, and I presonally can't say why I think 5.6.1
won't cut it, I'm passing on a remark by Stas.
