Getting started with the Perl language

Perl is an abbreviation for Practical Extraction and Report Language and translates as a "practical report extraction language."

Perl is an advanced, generic, translated, dynamic programming language.

Perl was originally designed by Larry Wall and published on December 18, 1987.

Perl borrows the features of C, sed, awk, shell scripts, and many other programming languages.

Perl's most important feature is perl's internal integration of regular expressions, as well as the huge third-party code base CCAN.
