Test::More now requires a minimum of 5.6 but it used to go back to 5.004.
There's a lot of code in the docs which is written with this in mind.
Replace it with good 5.6 practice.

What comes to mind...

  • like($have, "/regex/") instead of using qr//
  • open FH, $file instead of open my $fh, $file

Do a sweep of each bit of documentation.

@jkeenan did a sweep of the docs and didn't find anything.

74a305c eliminated the last non-justified use of open BAREWORD in the code.
