This programming language is very rich and powerful, is a toolbox very useful in many situations: system administration, text manipulation (mail, logs, linguistics, genetics), network programming (CGI, mod_perl, etc.), databases, interfaces graphics, etc. Its numerous libraries make it quickly irreplaceable in the eyes of those who acquire control. The handling of the language is facilitated by many possible reconciliations with the C, the shell or awk. Its POSIX compliance makes it an indispensable ally for the system administrator.
