What is PL file?

The .PL files refer to the file of the Perl programming language scripts. These files are nothing but the programming instructions written by any perl programmer using the syntax of Perl programming language. These files are supported on both Windows and Linux based operating systems. Perl is a high level programming language as a result, the scripts written in these .PL files are written specifically to achieve some tasks. An interpreter can compile these .PL files and run them on the user’s machine in a batch or one by one. These files are mainly used for server scripting purposes. 

Programs that support PL file

We hope we helped you solve the problem with the PL file. If you do not know where you can download the application from our list, click on the link (which is the name of the program) - you will find more information there on the location where to download the secure setup version of the required application.

What else may cause problems?

There can be more reasons which determine that you are not able to open the PL file (apart from the lack of the proper application installed).

First - the PL file may be incorrectly associated with the application installed to support it. In this case, you need to change this association by yourself. To do this, right-click on the PL file that you want to edit, click "Open with" and then select the program from the list that you have installed. After this operation, the problems with opening the PL file should be solved.

Second - the file you want to open can simply be damaged. Then, the best solution is to find a new version of given file, or download it again from the same source as before (maybe for some reason in the previous session the download of the PL file has not been completed and it cannot be opened properly).
