Perl:   .pl, .plex, and .aspl

.pl is the traditonal default extension for Perl although some developers will change the default extension in an effort to add an additional security level and .cgi is still popular as a Perl associated extension as well as .plex and .aspl.

  • .pl - Perl
  • .cgi - Common Gateway Interface
  • .plex - Perl Executable

PHP:   .php

.php is the default extension for PHP although some developers will change the default extension in an effort to add an additional security level. If your code is tied to a particular version of PHP then some developers at the major PHP version number to the extension as in .php3, .php4, .php5, etc. 

.phtml is also sometimes used especially for files that contain both HTML and Perl code.
