in reply to Perl Interpreters

Ignoring different versions of Perl for the moment, I only know of two (maybe three) Perl5 interpreters, though there may be others. The canonical "perl" binary is what you should generally expect to use. In addition, we have Perlito, which converts Perl5 (and Perl6) into Javascript, among other things. Finally, there's perl11, which is supposed to be a lot faster than the original perl because it eschews some of Perl's magic and uses a different virtual machine.
