Stubs for Deleted Documents

On Debian systems, you need to install the perl-doc package which contains the majority of
the standard Perl documentation and the perldoc program.

Extensive additional documentation for Perl modules is available, both those distributed
with Perl and third-party modules which are packaged or locally installed.

You should be able to view Perl's documentation with your man(1) program or perldoc(1).

Some documentation is not available as man pages, so if a cross-reference is not found by
man, try it with perldoc. Perldoc can also take you directly to documentation for
functions (with the -f switch). See "perldoc --help" (or "perldoc perldoc" or "man
perldoc") for other helpful options perldoc has to offer.

In general, if something strange has gone wrong with your program and you're not sure
where you should look for help, try making your code comply with use strict and use
warnings. These will often point out exactly where the trouble is.


Perl officially stands for Practical Extraction and Report Language, except when it

Perl was originally a language optimized for scanning arbitrary text files, extracting
information from those text files, and printing reports based on that information. It
quickly became a good language for many system management tasks. Over the years, Perl has
grown into a general-purpose programming language. It's widely used for everything from
quick "one-liners" to full-scale application development.

The language is intended to be practical (easy to use, efficient, complete) rather than
beautiful (tiny, elegant, minimal). It combines (in the author's opinion, anyway) some of
the best features of sed, awk, and sh, making it familiar and easy to use for Unix users
to whip up quick solutions to annoying problems. Its general-purpose programming
facilities support procedural, functional, and object-oriented programming paradigms,
making Perl a comfortable language for the long haul on major projects, whatever your

Perl's roots in text processing haven't been forgotten over the years. It still boasts
some of the most powerful regular expressions to be found anywhere, and its support for
Unicode text is world-class. It handles all kinds of structured text, too, through an
extensive collection of extensions. Those libraries, collected in the CPAN, provide
ready-made solutions to an astounding array of problems. When they haven't set the
standard themselves, they steal from the best -- just like Perl itself.


Perl is available for most operating systems, including virtually all Unix-like platforms.
See "Supported Platforms" in perlport for a listing.


See perlrun.
