Synopsis

    perl [options] [programfile] [files]

perl is the interpreter for the Perl programming language (the Swiss Army knife of Unix programming tools). The Perl program is provided via one or more -e options. If no -e options are used, the first file named on the command line is used for the program. See perlrun (1) for the full list of options.

For more information about Perl, see Learning Perl, Programming Perl, and Advanced Perl Programming, all listed in the Bibliography.
