  ePerl -- Embedded Perl 5 Language

  <URL:http://www.engelschall.com/sw/eperl/>

  Version 2.2.0 (18-07-1997)

  ePerl interprets an ASCII file bristled with Perl 5 program statements by
  evaluating the Perl 5 code while passing through the plain ASCII data. It
  can operate in various ways: As a stand-alone Unix filter or integrated Perl
  5 module for general file generation tasks and as a powerful Webserver
  scripting language for dynamic HTML page programming.
