  Perl - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Perl is widely used in finance and bioinformatics, where it is valued for rapid application development, ability to handle large data sets, and the availability of many standard and 3rd-party modules.
Perl is implemented as a core interpreter, written in C, together with a large collection of modules, written in Perl and C. The source distribution is, as of 2005, 12 MB when packaged in a tar file and compressed.
One consequence of this is that Perl is not a tidy language.

 Strict programming language - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A non-strict programming language is one which is not strict, and hence may allow lazy evaluation.
Strict programming languages are often associated with eager evaluation, and non-strict languages with lazy evaluation, but other evaluation strategies are possible in each case.
The terms "eager programming language" and "lazy programming language" are often used as synonyms for "strict programming language" and "non-strict programming language" respectively.

 Perl : Perl programming language   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-06)
Perl (sometimes backronymed to Practical Extraction and Report Language or Pathologically Eclectic Rubbish Lister) is a programming language created by Larry Wall in 1987 that borrows features from C, sed, awk, shell scripting (sh), and (to a lesser extent) from many other programming languages as well.
Perl is often considered the archetypal scripting language and has been called the "glue that holds the web together", as it is one of the most popular CGI languages.
Perl is available for most operating systems but is particularly prevalent on Unix and Unix-like systems, and is growing in popularity on Microsoft Windows systems.

 The Perl Programming Language
Perl does this by saving the value of a local variable outside the current symbol table, and restoring it when the program exits the block to which the variable is localized.
Perl can often warn you if you're in danger of running into a runaway recursive loop, but it's generally better practice to unroll recursive functions where possible by using a stack; we'll discuss recursion at greater length in the next chapter.
Perl was designed to be complete, not simple: as a result, most of the system interaction tasks that a C programmer would use external libraries for are actually built in.

 nntp.perl.org - perl.perl6.language.errors (306)
The authors' motivation is to help Perl 6 achieve a relatively robust exception handling mechanism that is suitable for error handling via exceptions, is still capable enough to handle the needs of production programs, and is still suitable for light-weight exceptions that may not involve errors at all.
The language should specify the rules by which this detected fault is bound to its corresponding exception-handling routine.
The authors are of the opinion that the public interface to to the core Perl API should support but not require the use of exceptions for errors that would set C<$!>, under the control of a S> or S> pragma.

Because the Perl community is both knowledgeable and active the language covers a lot more ground than it did at the time the last edition of Programming Perl was published.

Programs can be built into the hardware itself, or they may exist independently in a form known as software.
Compiled programs written in languages such as FORTRAN and C or C++ aren't directly executable by a computer; they are translated into lower-level machine language by compilers and then are executed directly by the hardware.
Object-oriented programming is a method of implementation in which programs are organized as cooperative collections of objects, each of which represents an instance of some class, and whose classes are all members of a hierarchy of classes united via inheritance relationship.

 A Beautifier for the Perl Programming Language   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-06)
A talk on an enhanced version of this program and other developments in Perl beautification was presented at TPC 5.0, in July of 2001.
The basic approach, borrowed from my C++ beautifiers, is to use a pre-processor to disguise Perl code as C code, effect the beautification using standard C tools, and then convert the disguised Perl back to its original form using a post-processor.
In some cases, it generates Perl code that is syntactically incorrect, usually due to the introduction or removal of spaces and/or newline characters.
