NAME
       pl2pm - Rough tool to translate Perl4 .pl files to Perl5 .pm modules.

SYNOPSIS
       pl2pm files

DESCRIPTION
       pl2pm is a tool to aid in the conversion of Perl4-style .pl library files to Perl5-style library modules.  Usu-
       ally, 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.

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