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
