Subject deprecated our() indicated in perldoc of Getopt::Std
Date Fri, 20 Apr 2001 21:36:32 GMT
I upgraded to v5.6.1 of perl and viewed the documentation for the
Getopt::Std as I wasn't familiar with its use for command line
arguments on a new install function I was building.  The docs indicate
use of our( $opt_foo, $opt_bar ) should 'use strict vars' be in use.
I wasn't familiar with this deprecated version of global variable
definitions but I used it..  much to my chagrin when the install was
actually performed on a perl v5.05003 equipped machine.

How did an older version of Getopt::Std get installed with a later
version of perl?
