NAME
       perlexperiment - A listing of experimental features in Perl

DESCRIPTION
       This document lists the current and past experimental features in the perl core. Although
       all of these are documented with their appropriate topics, this succinct listing gives you
       an overview and basic facts about their status.

       So far I've merely tried to find and list the experimental features and infer their
       inception, versions, etc. There's a lot of speculation here.

   Accepted features
       These features were so wildly successful and played so well with others that we decided to
       remove their experimental status and admit them as full, stable features in the world of
       Perl, lavishing all the benefits and luxuries thereof.  They are also awarded +5 Stability
       and +3 Charisma.

       (none yet identified)

   Removed features
       These features are no longer considered experimental and their functionality has
       disappeared. It's your own fault if you wrote production programs using these features
       after we explicitly told you not to (see perlpolicy).

       "legacy"
	       The experimental "legacy" pragma was swallowed by the "feature" pragma.

	       Introduced in: 5.11.2

	       Removed in: 5.11.3
