"Perl 5 is a highly capable, feature-rich programming language with over 27 years of development."

Perl is a C like scripting language with many additional modules to handle all sorts of tasks. Yafra shifted towards Python. Some scripts are however still in Perl and will run on any Unix.


The Perl apps are part of the Traveldb, Yapki modules and of the generic Yafra scripting repository The examples show usage of Perl::DBI, Perl::Tk and generic Perl functions. Perl is still very easy if you come from C/C++ development. It is best used within administration tasks.
