Visibility: warning

The named Perl script uses the named perl 4-era module, which is obsolete. Those libraries were deprecated in perl in 5.14, and will probably be removed from the core in perl 5.16.

Please remove the references to the module or add the prerequisite libperl4-corelibs-perl | perl (<< 5.12.3-7) to your package.

The following 8 source packages in the archive triggered the tag 16 times (in any Lintian version).
