Website Builder Resources: Guide to Perl Programming
Perl is an all-purpose scripting language. Larry Wall developed Perl in 1987 as a Unix scripting language. Over the years Perl went through new language, object, variables, modules and references changes that are featured in the current Perl 5 development. Perl is used for web development, network programming, bioinformatics and GUI development. It is used for prompt prototyping and web programming. Perl developers are currently working on Perl 6 with the Perl community. Program developers can look forward to changes in language, extensions and modifications that allow users to write programs in any language with a written parser.
