       ppll22ppmm is a tool to aid in the conversion of Perl4-style
       .pl library files to Perl5-style library modules.
       Usually, your old .pl file will still work fine and you
       should only use this tool if you plan to update your
       library to use some of the newer Perl 5 features, such as
       AutoLoading.

       It's just a first step, but it's usually a good first
       step.
