pl file icon:
File extension pl is associated with Perl, a stable, cross platform programming language. It is used for mission critical projects in the public and private sectors and is widely used to program web applications of all needs.
A .pl extension is rare on the web, because Perl scripts are usually served as cgi. Perl is popular enough that there are a few out there, though. Although Perl won't let you insert code into static HTML pages, it does have a library specifically for generating web pages.
Using the Perl CGI library, you can generate all the parts of each web page using a specialized function; a command to generate the tag etc. So, you don't have to use "print" to generate every single line of code, which must be handy.
