The following features are currently missing from PL/Perl, but they would make welcome contributions:
PL/Perl functions cannot call each other directly (because they are anonymous subroutines inside Perl). There's presently no way for them to share global variables, either.
PL/Perl cannot be used to write trigger functions.
DBD::PgSPI or similar capability should be integrated into the standard PostgreSQL distribution.
If you see anything in the documentation that is not correct, does not match your experience with the particular feature or requires further clarification, please use this form to report a documentation issue.
