problem with "our"

I'm new to perl.

How come this piece of code does not work in SunOs5.8, with perl v.
5.005_03 ?

our $choice = 67.90;
print STDERR " value is: ", $choice, "\n";
The error is as follows:

Can't modify subroutine entry in scalar assignment at line 3,
near "67.90;"
Execution of aborted due to compilation errors.

The above script works well in Linux 2.4.20-8 kernel with perl v. 5.8.0.
Also, if "our" is replaced with "my", then script works in both operating

Is perl version 5.005_03 too old?

Many thanks.

Yes. "our" was introduced in 5.6.
