    Well, do "perl -v" and see if it's at least 5.004 (5.004.003 I think
    would be better.) If so, hpa's requirement that everything work on
    5.004 is fine. (And really, I don't believe that requirement is going
    to be hard to follow, except that it does constrain the modules in use a
    little bit - I'm pretty sure the Digest::MD5 was missing from the 5.004
    default set of modules.)

    If you hacked sirc... Well, that's an example of incredibly bad Perl,
    so, you should be able to follow well-written and documented Perl, imo.

    (I did an amazing amount of sirc hacking in my time, and it was an
    exercise in pain, to be honest.)
