Oh, you're right. I somehow missed it. Thank you.

Another thing that I found weird is the extension. Why the .PLS
extension? It's the first time I see it for a perl script and actually
confuses my desktop.

I understand that aside the .pm and .t extension, perl doesn't really
care and there's no official rule. However, the canonical approach is
to use .pl for scripts or nothing for applications (and these scripts
end up being installed as individual applications anyway).
