*.pl is what is usually used for perl scripts.

My recollection may be faulty, but '*.pl' was meant to be used
for older Perl libraries back in perl4 days, and the standalone
scripts are to be named '*.perl' but many people made the
mistake of naming them '*.pl'.

I'm no expert and was just reporting what I'd observed but that observation wasn't thorough enough to notice the distinction that you make so forget what I said. :-)
