Please test with your work code to find any bugs as I'll release the

Cheers, Leon.

Pheasant is pleasant, of course,
And terrapin, too, is tasty,
Lobster I freely endorse,
In pate or patty or pasty.
But there's nothing the matter with butter,
And nothing the matter with jam,
And the warmest greetings I utter
To the ham and the yam and the clam.
For they're food,
All food,
And I think very fondly of food.
Through I'm broody at times
When bothered by rhymes,
I brood
On food.

I've just uploaded the first release candidate for Perl 5.12.4 to
PAUSE. You should be able to find it at:

SHA1 sums for this release are:

c46cfc3016367115898d9de8d61847d090b6bd18  perl-5.12.4-RC1.tar.bz2
820fecbd90f645306818a92bffdd5af585ad41df  perl-5.12.4-RC1.tar.gz

It's very important that you test this release with any software written
in Perl which you use or maintain. If no "showstopper" class bugs are
found in the next few days, we will release a virtually identical
tarball as Perl 5.12.4.

Cheers, Leon.
