What is Perl?
Perl is a high-level, general-purpose, interpreted, dynamic programming language. The Perl language borrows features from other programming languages, including C, shell scripting (sh), AWK, and sed.
How to use this image
Dockerfile in your Perl app project
FROM perl:5.20 COPY . /usr/src/myapp WORKDIR /usr/src/myapp CMD [ "perl", "./your-daemon-or-script.pl" ]
Then, build and run the Docker image:
$ docker build -t my-perl-app . $ docker run -it --rm --name my-running-app my-perl-app
Run a single Perl script
For many simple, single file projects, you may find it inconvenient to write a complete
Dockerfile. In such cases, you can run a Perl script by using the Perl Docker image directly:
$ docker run -it --rm --name my-running-script -v "$PWD":/usr/src/myapp -w /usr/src/myapp perl:5.20 perl your-daemon-or-script.pl
