The author presents his views on the development of Perl 5.005 computer program language, which was uploaded by developer Leon Brocard in September 2007 and was maintained under the Google Code project. He opines that some of the CPAN Testers adopted the new version of Perl 5.005 and started comparing it with previous modules. He believes that the versions of Perl modules developed by Michael Schwern will not support 5.005.
