Binary packages built by this source
- libcgi-fast-perl: CGI::Fast Perl module
CGI::Fast is a subclass of the CGI object created by CGI.pm. It is
specialized to work well with the Open Market FastCGI standard, which
greatly speeds up CGI scripts by turning them into persistently running
server processes. Scripts that perform time-consuming initialization
processes, such as loading large modules or opening persistent database
connections, will see large performance improvements.
- libperl-dev: Perl library: development files
Files for developing applications which embed a Perl interpreter.
- libperl5.14: shared Perl library
This package is required by programs which embed a Perl interpreter to
ensure that the correct version of `perl-base' is installed. It
additionally contains the shared Perl library on architectures where the
perl binary is linked to libperl.a (currently only i386, for performance
reasons). In other cases the actual library is in the `perl-base' package.
- perl: Larry Wall's Practical Extraction and Report Language
An interpreted scripting language, known among some as "Unix's Swiss
Perl is optimised for scanning arbitrary text files and system
administration. It has built-in extended regular expression matching
and replacement, a data-flow mechanism to improve security with
setuid scripts and is extensible via modules that can interface to C
- perl-base: minimal Perl system
Perl is a scripting language used in many system scripts and utilities.
This package provides a Perl interpreter and the small subset of the
standard run-time library required to perform basic tasks. For a full
Perl installation, install "perl" (and its dependencies, "perl-modules"
- perl-debug: debug-enabled Perl interpreter
debugperl provides a debug-enabled version of Perl which can produce
extensive information about the interpreter as it compiles and executes
a program (see the -D switch in perlrun(1)).
Note that this package is primarily of use in debugging *Perl* rather
than perl programs, which may be traced/debugged using the standard
perl binary using the -d switch (see perldebug(1)).
- perl-doc: Perl documentation
Perl manual pages, POD documentation and the `perldoc' program. If you are
writing Perl programs, you almost certainly need this.
- perl-modules: Core Perl modules
Architecture independent Perl modules. These modules are part of Perl and
required if the `perl' package is installed.
Note that this package only exists to save archive space and should be
considered an internal implementation detail of the `perl' package.
Other packages should not depend on `perl-modules' directly, they
should use `perl' (which depends on `perl-modules') instead.
