ldesc: "Perl is a high-level programming language with roots in C, 
sed, awk and shell scripting.  Perl is good at handling processes 
and files, and is especially good at handling text.  Perl's 
hallmarks are practicality and efficiency.  While it is used to 
do a lot of different things, Perl's most common applications are 
system administration utilities and web programming.  A large 
proportion of the CGI scripts on the web are written in Perl.  
You need the perl package installed on your system so that your 
system can handle Perl scripts."

test: 5.8.0-1
