It's probably more worth the effort to get yourself on
a newer version of perl.  Catalyst 5.7+ has some great
features like action chaining as well as more tests
and improved documentation.  Is there a reason you
can't upgrade perl?  If you are on a reasonably modern
linux you could probably do it with a package
installer such as debian's apt-get.

I know that's probably not the answer you wanted to
hear but it's really your best bet to stay modern with
catalyst.  If you are on an old version of Catalyst
you are going to have a hard time getting help with
bugs and other trouble.
