Updating Perl

Hi, I am currently on Perl 5.6.1, and need to upgrade to Perl 5.8.0 or higher to make the latest version of Request Tracker work. Does anyone know of a package that would work with apt-get to update this?

If you have the proper sources in your sources.list this should do the trick:

apt-get update
apt-get upgrade

If it's not in there you have to find another debian source, install it from source or maybe experimental has it.
