Re: [ANNOUNCEMENT] Updated: perl-5.10.0-1 [EXPERIMENTAL]

Since 5.10 is not installed in parallel to 5.8 (it is possible, but not
with this package), all your old 5.8 modules will need to be reinstalled
Your old 5.8 modules are not deleted, just not accessible to 5.10.
Non-binary packages can be used by adding /usr/lib/perl5/site_lib/5.8 to
your @INC, but the below procedure is recommended to get the latest
version for each installed package.
This will not harm most of your previous 5.8 modules in case you want to
switch back to 5.8, just the /bin scripts might get overwritten.
BEFORE INSTALLATION of 5.10 !
# get the list of installed 5.8 modules
$ perl -MExtUtils::Installed \
-e'print join("\n", new ExtUtils::Installed->modules)' > module.list
AFTER INSTALLATION of 5.10 !
# install all previous modules for 5.10
$ cpan `cat module.list`
Thinking more of the involved upgrade path, I'll upload an improved
version -2 on the weekend, which will include the old site_perl
non-archlib path to @INC. This is similar to other distributions.
This is not as clean, but only binary modules will have to be recompiled.
