The point is that occasionally new features of Perl can only be released by restricting old syntax which might result in ambiguous parsing.

But P5P isn't that careless: All modules undergo regression tests with every version of Perl. The results for CAD::Drawing can be seen here:

As you see, it is well known that this module fails with all Perls starting from 5.18.2. And since then, as far as I know, the registered maintainer of the CPAN module should have received an email report about the failure.

Like Corion wrote, the fix is dead simple. So, if you know how to contact the author, it doesn't hurt to nudge him (again). He did the latest release in 2006, but might still be willing to maintain the module.

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
