perl: Practical Extraction and Report Language1

Package available in: [trunk] [8.0] [7.0] [6.0] [2.1]

Perl, also Practical Extraction and Report Language is a programming language released by Larry Wall on December 18, 1987 that borrows features from C, sed, awk, shell scripting (sh), and (to a lesser extent) from many other programming languages.

Perl was designed to be a practical language to extract information from text files and to generate reports from that information - the Swiss Army Chainsaw of Programming Languages.
