  • Here is a rough indicator of perl version being used with Test::Harness based on the test report for the module [cpantesters.org]:

    Test::Harness 3.15

        Version  Tests  Percent
        5.6          7    6.6 %
        5.8         46   43.4 %
        5.10        52   49.1 %
        5.11         1    0.9 %
        Total      106

        <  5.8       7    6.6 %
        >= 5.8      99   93.4 %

    Test::Harness 3.16

        Version  Tests  Percent
        5.6         18    6.7 %
        5.8        126   47.2 %
        5.10       123   46.1 %
        Total      267

        <  5.8      18    6.7 %
        >= 5.8     249   93.3 %

    So, as a very rough metric, among people who use automated installers and report tests, perl 5.6 usage is approximately 7%.
