Hi all,

Perl's use as a language for generating SVG growing.

Wheras in 2001 there were two SVG related modules on CPAN, there are not
over 150,

most of which have been maintained and updated within the last 12 months...

On CPAN, the Comprehensive Perl Archive Network, there are more than 150
tools that deal with SVG content:

Note: Distributions are released bundles aimed at a specific task, and
modules are specific libraries which are part of a distribution.

Perl's chief strength as a language is that it is easily implemented, is
ubiquitous (100% of Linux and Unix servers and workstations come with Perl
installed and Perl runs on 100% of internet-ready servers), and its very
strong developer community.

Here is a list of open-sourced Perl distributions and modules available
free of charge through the CPAN Perl repository.
