What is the Perl validator?
The instructions will show you how to use this tool to test your Perl scripts.
Perl is a popular programming language used by many different websites, such as The Guardian, Amazon and IMDB. 123 Reg Hosting packages come with a Perl debugger which will allow you to test your Perl code and iron out any mistakes you may have.
