Perl is a high-level, general-purpose, interpreted, dynamic programming language. Perl was originally developed by Larry Wall in 1987 as a general-purpose Unix scripting language to make report processing easier. Since then, it has undergone many changes and revisions and become widely popular amongst programmers. Larry Wall continues to oversee development of the core language, and its upcoming version, Perl 6. Perl borrows features from other programming languages including C, shell scripting (sh), AWK, and sed. The language provides powerful text processing facilities without the arbitrary data length limits of many contemporary Unix tools, facilitating easy manipulation of text files. Perl gained widespread popularity in the late 1990s as a CGI scripting language, in part due to its parsing abilities.
In addition to CGI, Perl is used for graphics programming, system administration, network programming, finance, bioinformatics, and other applications. Perl is nicknamed "the Swiss Army chainsaw of programming languages" because of its flexibility and power. It is also referred to as the "duct tape that holds the Internet together", in reference to its ubiquity and perceived inelegance.
Larry Wall began work on Perl in 1987, while working as a programmer at Unisys, and released version 1.0 to the comp.sources.misc newsgroup on December 18, 1987. The language expanded rapidly over the next few years.
Perl 2, released in 1988, featured a better regular expression engine. Perl 3, released in 1989, added support for binary data streams.
Originally the only documentation for Perl was a single (increasingly lengthy) man page. In 1991, Programming Perl, known to many Perl programmers as the "Camel Book" because of its cover, was published and became the de facto reference for the language. At the same time, the Perl version number was bumped to 4, not to mark a major change in the language but to identify the version that was documented by the book.
Fixed issue with quotation marks on iOS 11
Added support of iPhone X
Ratings and Reviews
FREE is deceiving here
You can download the app for free and run the sample code already given for free. That's it! If you even want to test the app for any other code sample then you have to pay.
IMHO listing app as paid and pricing it to $2.99 would have been a true description. As $2.99 is the payment you have to make to get unlimited compilations.
Developer Response ,
You can assess the application for free before purchasing compilations package.
Works, but limitations.
Works fine. Uses online compiler, so it needs internet access to work.
No easy way to share code between devices.
Perl on your iPhone. Mostly.
Uses an online interpreter, so you have to be online to execute the peel script. Also, It does not seem possible to include other modules, for instance I can 'use Data::Dumper;' , but I can't 'use JSON;'
