Installation kits for OpenVMS Alpha and OpenVMS I64 v8.4 and later are 
available at:


The files are self-extracting archives and after downloading you must run them 
like so:


for Alpha, and:

$ run VMSPORTS-I64VMS-PERL526-V0526-2-1.SFX_I64EXE

for Itanium.  Then, on either platform:

$ product install perl526

and follow the usual installation prompts. Note that the major version is now 
included in the product name so this installation will not remove installations 
of previous versions (e.g., 5.22 or 5.24).

The kits provided here are intended to be a convenient way to acquire a default 
build; there are many other configuration options available if you build your 
own Perl from the source at <>.

Have an appropriate amount of fun.  Anything related to these kits that turns 
out to be more fun than you can handle is probably best reported on the vmsperl 
mailing list.[1]

Changes in this release can be found via typing "perldoc perldelta" after 
installation or, since this is the first kit I've released in the 5.26.x 
series, you may wish to start with "perldoc perl5260delta" and also look at 
perl5261delta and perl5262delta.  Or view on the web at:
