Binary package “perl-base” in ubuntu intrepid
The Pathologically Eclectic Rubbish Lister
A scripting language with delusions of full language-hood, Perl is used
in many system scripts and utilities.
This is a stripped down Perl with only essential libraries. To make
full use of Perl, you'll want to install the `perl', `perl-modules' and
optionally `perl-doc' packages which supplement this one.
