Documenting with Perl
Perl offers us many ways to create files and reports, including PDF files, Word documents, TXT and CSV files, and more. In this subsection, we will examine a few ways to document positive results from our penetration test in a single file that can be used later to create a final draft.

Proper note taking and documentation can lead to a much better final report and sometimes to advancing the vulnerability during the test. This is a skill that we will develop over time, and using Perl to do so is a great benefit.
We have already taken a look at how we can pipe the output of our Perl programs to files using the Bash shell ...
