Wed 16 May 2012 05:00:59 AM UTC, original submission:  

On Perl 5.10.0 (as shipped with Mac OS X 10.6), perl emits the following warning whenever stow is run:

% stow --version
v-string in use/require non-portable at /rr/bin/stow line 412, <DATA> line 18.
stow (GNU Stow) version 2.2.0

The problem is that stow (and chkstow) contain the line "require 5.6.1;".  The perldoc for "require" recommends using "require 5.006_001;" instead of "require 5.6.1;".  The attached patch makes this change in both stow.in and chkstow.in.
