Unfortunately, no.  Most people in my hometown never heard of it.

Tom, et. al.

Yes, I'm sure I'm using perl5.004.04 (Redhat perl-5.004m4-1.rpm distro)
This was an update on the Redhat site.

I have searched through all the header files on my system that are 
declared in pg.c and there is no reference to PL_na in any of them.
I also searched through the original 5.004.04 that came with Redhat5.1 and
it isn't declared in any of the perl files there either.

Does anyone know where PL_na is declared (and, out curiousity, what it

Thanks for everyone's time in reading this.
