FWIW the problem I'm having with 5.6 and later versions is that pwent
compiles but fails testing. I'm going to drop checking on it if the
5.00503 works ok. I'll deal with that pwent when I upgrade the system,
if it's still a problem.

What kind of system are you using?
I wouldn't expect you to. I would suggest that you include a tested
version note in the docs.
Is there a minimum version of Perl which is
necessary for mharc?
I would like to have mharc run under Perl 5.004 (aka 5.4) or later.
However, as I noted in a response to another message of your's, I do
not test against older versions.
It appears that the earliest version mharc will run under is 5.00503,
that appears to be the version where the File::Find convention changed.
I may have missed something but I could not identify the FIle::Find
module as an independent module on CPAN. I have every thing installed
now after upgrading to the perl5.00503. I will keep in touch as I
progress to see if this version has any problems.
If the amount of work to support Perl versions before 5.6.1 is a
burden, I will not do it (unless I am sufficiently $motivated$ :-).
Currently, your problems have simple solutions, so I see no reason
why mharc cannot run under the version of Perl you are using: 5.005.
I can't say how much I appreciate your prompt, and helpful responses. I
have been sending messages as I progress in hopes of helping your
efforts in my somewhat limited way and preventing you form wasting any
effort on my problems after I've solved them. I hope you find them
useful. I also hope future users will find this exchange useful in the
