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.
