Binary packages built by this source

libperl-dev: Perl library: development files

 Files for developing applications which embed a Perl interpreter.

libperl5.30: shared Perl library

 This package contains the shared Perl library, used by applications
 which embed a Perl interpreter.
 It also contains the architecture-dependent parts of the standard
 library (and depends on perl-modules-5.30 which contains the
 architecture-independent parts).

perl: Larry Wall's Practical Extraction and Report Language

 Perl is a highly capable, feature-rich programming language with over
 20 years of development. Perl 5 runs on over 100 platforms from
 portables to mainframes. Perl is suitable for both rapid prototyping
 and large scale development projects.
 Perl 5 supports many programming styles, including procedural,
 functional, and object-oriented. In addition to this, it is supported
 by an ever-growing collection of reusable modules which accelerate
 development. Some of these modules include Web frameworks, database
 integration, networking protocols, and encryption. Perl provides
 interfaces to C and C++ for custom extension development.

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-5.30"
 and "perl-doc").

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)).
 In addition, this package also includes debugging information for the normal
 Perl interpreter.

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-5.30: 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-5.30' directly, they
 should use `perl' (which depends on `perl-modules-5.30') instead.
