Perl is a general-purpose programming language that was originally created for text manipulation but is now used for a wide range of tasks, including system administration, web development, network programming, games, bioinformatics, and graphical user interface development.

The main advantages of the language are support for different paradigms (procedural, object-oriented, and functional programming styles), memory control (no loop-based garbage collector), built-in text processing support, and a large collection of third-party modules.

The PERL Extensions section is for managing Perl extensions: here you can browse your existing extensions and install additional ones.
