What is Perl?

Perl, or Practical Extraction and Report Language, is a powerful programming language available on Linux, Windows, and many other varieties of Unix. One of the strengths of Perl is in it's ease of use. Powerful programs to manipulate data can be developed with a small amount of code.

Perl is extensible. Thousands of modules have been written to add specific capabilities to Perl, such as the ability to create images or the ability to access a database. These pre-written modules reduce the amount of code which must be written in order to create powerful programs.

Perl can be found in many different applications. On the administration side, Perl scripts are often used to perform routine administration tasks, such as searching log files for errors. Users may encounter Perl scripts when accessing CGI scripts on websites.

One of Perl's biggest strengths is its ability to parse and transform data. Simple perl scripts can be used to reformat data, such as what may be required to reformat a "dump" from one software program into an import file for another program.

Perl is still widely used. Many Linux software programs are written in Perl, including the SpamAssassin e-mail scanner and the SARG proxy monitor.
