1.016 2019-09-13T13:37:01Z

	dependency: https://github.com/briandfoy/PerlPowerTools/issues/49

	* Fix the diff docs (GitHub #20)

1.005 2015-04-17T01:20:12Z
	* Don't install at the same location as perl. Make the
	user think about where to install them so these tools
	don't interfere with the real tools of the same name.

	* I'm not sure all of the programs even ran, but at least they
	compile now

	unauthorized.
