  • I can't say for sure if it is what the Perl is for, but Oracle does allow you to write Perl stored procudures inside the database (Some people apparently love it for doing SQL with "real" regex support.

    So it may well be for this.
    • Any idea what version was the first to support this? Last time I checked, if you wanted to do such stored Perl procedures, you had to compile an external module or something. But it makes sense for them to include it, and it makes sense that this may be what the included perl is for.
