Re: [EveryAuction] what is the difference between a pl file and a cgi file

cgi is not a programming language. It's a set of specifications which specify how an application communicates with a web server. See RFC 3875

cgi programs can be withing Perl, PHP, C, and just about any other language that can read/write to STDOUT.
