in thread Execute a Perl code without ".pl" extension

My personal preference is to leave to ".pl" in place as it tells me that I can edit it as a normal Perl script.

    At least where I'm sitting, "executables" are sometimes compiled, sometimes perl scripts, sometimes shell scripts...you get the idea. I use the "file" command to tell me what's what. And hey...file uses magic...really. The file that stores the heuristics that it uses for guessing is /etc/magic. :)
