Could I remove Perl without losing my X server?

Novell Cool Solutions: Question & Answer

Q:
Could I remove Perl without losing my X server?

A:
Perl is used in runlevel and SUSEconfig scripts. It could also be used in some rpm scripts. So, in essence, you'd not only lose X support, but you might even have trouble booting your machine.

Advice: Don't remove Perl.
