Perlwikibot is a framework for writing MediaWiki bots written in Perl, a free and open-source cross-platform programming language. MediaWiki::Bot itself provides classes and methods to perform many common tasks. There are currently no ready-to-run scripts like those found in Pywikibot.

Documentation is best found by the command perldoc MediaWiki::Bot, or from CPAN. There is also some documentation on the Google Code wiki and on the GitHub repository.
