About Perl: "Perl is an interpreted high-level programming language
developed by Larry Wall. According to Larry, he included in Perl
all the cool features found in other languages and left out those
features that weren't so cool. Perl has become the premier
scripting language of the Web, as most CGI programs are written in
Perl. However, Perl is widely used as a rapid prototyping language
and a "glue" language that makes it possible for different systems
to work well together. Perl is popular with system administrators
who use it for an infinite number of automation tasks. Perl's roots
are in UNIX but you will find Perl on a wide range of computing
platforms. Because Perl is an interpreted language, Perl programs
are highly portable across systems. Finally, Perl is more than a
programming language. It is a part of the Internet culture. It is a
very creative way of thinking about almost anything."
About mod_perl: "The Apache/Perl integration project brings
together the full power of the Perl programming language and the
Apache HTTP server. With mod_perl it is possible to write Apache
modules entirely in Perl. In addition, the persistent interpreter
embedded in the server avoids the overhead of starting an external
interpreter and the penalty of Perl start-up time."
