Executable program written in the Perl programming language; often used for Web applications that are run on a Web server, but may be run on any system that includes a Perl interpreter.

File Type 232-bit Linux IDA Plugin Module
.PLX File Association 2
32-bit Linux plugin module used by IDA (The Interactive Disassembler), a tool that allows users to disassemble executable files into low-level assembly language code; contains a plugin written in C++ that extends the capabilities of the IDA tool.
The PLX files are loadable libraries, similar to .DLL, that extend IDA's functionality. The PLX plugin should be placed in the /plugin/plx/ directory.
NOTE: Each IDA plugin uses a different extension depending on its operating system type. The .PLW extension is used for Windows 32-bit, the .P64 extension is used by Windows 64-bit, and the .PLX64 extension is used by Linux 64-bit plugins.
