Updated: Perl 5.8.0, third release


I've updated Perl.

Changes: - Moved Cygwin to the non DOSish platforms.
         - Updated CPAN module to v1.70_54

Therefore it is no longer needed to define PERLIO in the environment.
Defaults to PERLIO=stdio now if it is not set.  However iff
LF -> CR/LF *conversion* in perl generated output is wanted now, one
needs to define PERLIO=crlf in his environment or at the commandline:

Default now:

$ /bin/perl -e 'print "\n";'|od -a
0000000  nl
$ PERLIO=crlf /bin/perl -e 'print "\n";'|od -a
0000000  cr  nl

$ /bin/perl -e 'print "\r\n";'|od -a
0000000  cr  nl

Default was before the change:

$ /bin/perl -e 'print "\n";'|od -a
0000000  cr  nl

ldesc: "Perl is a high-level programming language with roots in C, 
sed, awk and shell scripting.  Perl is good at handling processes 
and files, and is especially good at handling text.  Perl's 
hallmarks are practicality and efficiency.  While it is used to 
do a lot of different things, Perl's most common applications are 
system administration utilities and web programming.  A large 
proportion of the CGI scripts on the web are written in Perl.  
You need the perl package installed on your system so that your 
system can handle Perl scripts."
