in reply to Re: Perl modules and the GPL
in thread Perl modules and the GPL

To be more precise it's http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-faq.html#IfInterpreterIsGPL

Another similar and very common case is to provide libraries with the interpreter which are themselves interpreted. For instance, Perl comes with many Perl modules, and a Java implementation comes with many Java classes. These libraries and the programs that call them are always dynamically linked together.

A consequence is that if you choose to use GPL'd Perl modules or Java classes in your program, you must release the program in a GPL-compatible way, regardless of the license used in the Perl or Java interpreter that the combined Perl or Java program will run on.
