—Yoda, on exceptions in Perl.
Well, as the Perl Foundation blog says, I'm working on getting relocation working, and it'll be a race to see what gets done first: getting relocation working, or Perl 5.12.0 RC0.
Once both are done, I'll release the first betas for the April cycle.
Right now, I've hooked in a "choose the location" dialog into the installer for 5.11.5+ versions, and I've just finished blocking the ability to install into a directory with spaces.
(Unfortunately, until I can safely run dmake (which I know does not work) and all the other modules in the toolchain that Perl relies on in a directory with spaces, I'm blocking the ability to install into a directory with spaces. There is a code to get around it, if you REALLY want to know... but you have to ask me for it, and I can't support it if you do.)
The other "unfortunately" that's a problem is perl RT#73562, which is going to prevent 5.10.1 from being relocated if I don't get a patch I can use for it.
