Rating: 0 of 5

The Perl 5 Porters have been steadily adding new features to Perl over the past few years. Maybe you've noticed and have adopted a few into your own code. Maybe you've noticed but haven't begun using them. Or maybe you haven't noticed. Some of Perl's newest features were inherited from the work that has gone into Perl 6. Some of them are uniquely Perl 5. Many of them are highly useful in writing modern code.

We'll take a look at the most important of the new features introduced from 5.10 onward, all the way through the experimental Perl 5.25. We'll try to find a few things for every Perl developer, no matter how vigilant you think you've been at keeping up with Perl's modernization.
