Summary     : Practical Extraction and Report Language
Description :
Perl is a high-level programming language with roots in C, sed, awk and shell
scripting.  Perl is good at handling processes and files, and is especially
good at handling text.  Perl's hallmarks are practicality and efficiency.
While it is used to do a lot of different things, Perl's most common
applications are system administration utilities and web programming.  A large
proportion of the CGI scripts on the web are written in Perl.  You need the
perl package installed on your system so that your system can handle Perl

Install this package if you want to program in Perl or enable your system to
handle Perl scripts.

Update Information:

This update fixes a problem introduced in the previous perl update in which files from the perl-threads, perl-threads-shared and perl-version subpackages were duplicated in the main perl package, leading to conflicts between the main perl package and the dual-lived versions of those subpackages.
