While you may have perl-5.8.2_2 installed, it doesn't appear to be
getting invoked (althought it's possible); the include path perl is
searching is all perl5.005-specific.
Try this: from the command line, execute `/usr/bin/perl -v`(don't type
the backticks). The message displayed will include the perl version.
If it's version 5.005, then that's your problem; markdown requires
perl5.6 or newer.
If you know the correct path to your perl 5.8 executable, you can
change the first line of Markdown.pl to reflect this location. On many
*nix systems, the "which" command can be useful; try `which perl` to
see the location of the copy of perl that will be run if you just type
perl from the command line. If the location is *not* /usr/bin/perl,
then try running the path returned with the -v switch. For example, if
`which perl` returns "/usr/local/bin/perl", then try running
`/usr/local/bin/perl -v`. If the version is 5.6 or better, then you
are all set. If not (or if which doesn't work for you), ask your
sysadmins for the path to a newer perl.
Once you know the path to a newer perl, change the first line of
Markdown.pl to match. For example, if the correct path to perl 5.8 on
your system is /usr/local/bin/perl, then change the first line of
Markdown.pl to this:
Note that the # should be the first character on the line... no spaces
or tabs allowed.
If the results of our first test (/usr/bin/perl -v) were version 5.6 or
version 5.8, you'll need to ask your sysadmins for help; the newer perl
is only searching the include path of the older perl.

I don't know; it doesn't bother me. I replied on-list because I expect
other people may have similar problems in the future, as Markdown
becomes more popular. Hopefully they will search the archives, as you
did :) Besides, it doesn't hurt to have others check my work. If you
continue to have problems that you feel are site specific, feel free to
email me directly off-list.
Hope this helps,
