Perl is a family of two high-level, general-purpose, interpreted, dynamic programming languages. Perl is a highly expressive programming language: source code for a given algorithm can be short and highly compressible. Perl 7 was announced on 24 June 2020 at "The Perl Conference in the Cloud" as the successor to Perl 5.

Perl file have file extension .pl and it should start from perl location. Also I do advise to initialize strongest syntax check.

use strict;
use warnings FATAL => 'all';


Comments can be started from # or for multiline comments kept between =pod and =cut lines

# this is one line comment
print "Hello, World!\n"; # comment can be started here
this line is comment
and this line is comment
