What is a PLX file?

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.

More Information

Perl scripts can be run on Windows IIS systems using Perl for ISAPI (Internet Server Application Programming Interface) or with ActivePerl.

The standard way of naming Perl files is .PM for Perl modules, .PL for Perl libraries, and PLX for executable Perl scripts.

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.

More Information

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.
