Hi Brad and list,

I'm packaging Perlbal for Fedora, as a dependency for Mogilefs.
Perlbal can optionally use IO::AIO to speed things, so I'm planning  
on packaging IO::AIO as well.
However, the latest version on CPAN is 2.33. Perlbal/ tries to  
use version 1.6, which is a bit old:

# Try and use IO::AIO or Linux::AIO, if it's around.
     $Perlbal::OPTMOD_IO_AIO        = eval "use IO::AIO 1.6 (); 1;";
     $Perlbal::OPTMOD_LINUX_AIO     = eval "use Linux::AIO 1.71 (); 1;";

I tested perlbal with IO::AIO 2.33, and so far, it seems to work fine.

Would it be possible to check for version 1.6 or higher?

Kind regards,

Ruben Kerkhof
