Thanks for the upload,

The following information was provided by the package's contributor.

Name of contribution: PerlTeX
Author's name: Scott Pakin

Summary description: Define LaTeX macros in terms of Perl code
License type: lppl

Announcement text given by the package's contributor:
- - ----------------------------------------------------------------------
This upgrade (v1.1) corrects some unintuitive behavior
regarding the way that macro parameters are expanded.  Now,
\begin, \end, and all robust commands are left unexpanded. 
PerlTeX v1.1 also supports new \perlnewenvironment and 
\perlrenewenvironment macros that enable environments to be 
constructed from Perl code.
