"ActivePerl is ActiveState's free binary distribution of Perl."

"ActiveState, the leading provider of Internet programming software and services, won the best programming tool award for ActivePerl 5.6 in the annual WebTechniques Web Tools Award. ActivePerl is ActiveState's free binary distribution of Perl. WebTechniques' readers were most impressed with ActivePerl's ability to develop within an ASP environment and still have access to what made Perl popular in the first place: pattern matching and regular expressions, the Perl built-in functions, and a vast library of free or low-cost Perl modules to use in your code."

"The Web Tools Awards recognize the most innovative proprietary and open source products used in every stage of the Web development and maintenance process: strategy, design, programming, and infrastructure. The judges felt ActivePerl managed to convince Perl developers to begin building sites with Active Server Pages."
