Publisher's Preface

This manual is part of the official reference documentation for Perl, a highly expressive programming language created by Larry Wall.

Perl is free software. The term “free software” refers to your freedom to run, copy, distribute, study, change and improve the software. With Perl you have all these freedoms.

You can support free software by joining the Free Software Foundation, which is dedicated to promoting the right to copy, modify, and redistribute computer programs. It also works to raise awareness of the ethical and political issues of freedom in the use of software. For more information visit the website www.fsf.org.

The development of Perl itself is supported by the Perl Foundation, a registered non-profit organisation which funds new Perl projects and helps to organise conferences for Perl users. Donations to the Perl Foundation can be made online through its website at www.perlfoundation.org.
