File type specification:

Source code and script file type icon Source code and script file type

The pls file extension is related to the PerlScript and used for its source code files.

Windows Script Host (WSH) is a scripting host for ActiveX Scripting Engines such as PerlScript. As a host, WSH enables you to use the scripting language from the command-line and from within the Windows desktop with the WSH features.

PerlScript was initially solely an ActiveX Scripting Engine produced by the company ActiveState for use with Microsoft's Internet Information Services (IIS) that allows for programmers to use Perl-based code in addition to, or in place of, VBScript or JScript in the context of web servers running the ASP protocol. Subsequently Apache::ASP was created for the Apache web server, which allows for coding with only Perl, but neither VBScript nor JScript. PerlScript can also be used to write Windows Script Host-based programs, similar to VBScript.
