Perl 5.12 on Ubuntu 10.10

view full story

http://askubuntu.com – How can I use perl 5.12 on Ubuntu 10.10? There is no distribution package on Ubuntu. I have to use feature 'unicode_strings'; in my perl code, and this is available from 5.12. I try to install perl on Ubuntu by apt-get install perl, but 5.10 is the latest version. How can I deal with this? Or is there any code in 5.10 can replace the code feature 'unicode_strings';? Thanks. (HowTos)
