Perl is yet another programming/scripting language. It is interpreted, and therefore requires no compilation. It has an amazingly large set of libraries for everything from communications and databases to XML parsing. While it has been the mainstay of SysAdmins for scripting for many years, I personally find the syntax to be bothersome, and greatly prefer Python.
