What is PL file?

The PL extension is a Perl script, which is a stable cross-platform programming language compiled and executed using the Perl interpreter. It is used for mission-critical projects in the public and is widely used for programming web applications on more than 100 platforms.

More information

The .PL extension is rarely used on the web because Perl scripts tend to work as CGI (Common Gateway Interface) scripts, which are placed in the «/cgi-bin» directory. Although Perl does not allow you to put code into static HTML pages, it has a library that is specially used for creating web pages. Using the Perl CGI library, you can create all parts of any web page with the help of a special function, a command to create a tag and so on. This way, you don't have to use «Print» to generate every line of code, which can be very handy.
