Perl is a cross-platform scripting language. Several free packages for web sites are written in Perl. The Perl interpreter is mature and easy to install. Once you install Perl, you can use it to run Perl scripts from the command line or for web pages under IIS for Windows 2000 and later (IIS 5, 5.1, and 6).
Many web tools are written in Perl, including MRTG and AWStats.
For a free Perl installation, go to the ActiveState site and follow the links to download and install Perl. The installer does a good job at setting up your IIS system to run Perl scripts for web pages.
