Hello list,

latex2html 99.1 (release) doesn't work with Perl 5.6.0 because of some
minor code glitches, mostly a "Too many arguments for ..." error with
undef and rmdir. This seems pretty easy to fix. However: shouldn't the
latest stable releases of l2h work with the latest stable release of Perl
(which is 5.6.0) out of the box? IMHO there should be a new stable l2h
release *as soon as possible* since Perl 5.6.0 is out since end of March!

If l2h 99.2b6 (which works fine with Perl 5.6.0) is not read for production
yet, I suggest releasing a fixed 99.1. Ross?

(Or am I the only one seeing those errors?)

Kind regards,
