    Zope *Script* objects are objects that encapsulate a small chunk
    of code written in a programming language.  Currently, Zope
    provides *Python-based Scripts*, which are written in the Python
    language, and *Perl-based Scripts* which are written in the Perl
    language.  Script objects are new as of Zope 2.3, and are the
    preferred way to write programming logic in Zope.

       Zope _does not_ provide Perl-based scripts. There is no "add script (Perl)" action in management interface -
       AFAIK third-party products pyperl and zoperl are required. Pyperl installation is not trivial (it essentially
       requires re-installing Perl with threading and sharing enabled), and zoperl is still in beta.
