Perl in CI/CD workflows: Yes you can!

Juan Julián Merelo-Guervós

Perl is buried, but only because it's underneath everything and nobody ever bothered to dig for it. Since it's in every Debian, and most Ubuntu LTS distributions, it's readily available to use. Besides, default systems include a good amount of libraries you can use in your workflows.
