Subject: EPICS Base bin/<arch>/ca{get,info,monitor,put}.pl scripts

Hello!

Why are there the following Perl scripts with the same names as
binaries, but with a .pl extension, in the EPICS Base 3.15.6 installed
bin/<arch> directory?

  caget.pl
  cainfo.pl
  camonitor.pl
  caput.pl

Are the .pl scripts workalikes to the binaries?  If so, what benefit
do they provide?  If no benefit, then I think they should be removed
in a future release series (e.g., EPICS Base 7.0, assuming it's still
OK to introduce breaking changes in that release series since it's a
development series without a production release).

Thanks!

Lewis
