Yes, HP-UX releases 10.10 through 11.10 are shipped with Perl v4.0.1.8.
11.11 comes with Perl 5.005_02.  The perl executable is
/usr/contrib/bin/perl.  A little known gem of knowledge is that the Perl 4
exectuable that is included with 10.10 through 11.10 is statically linked!
Since the binary is only 532k, you should consider the option of placing
a copy in /sbin.  That way, if you ever need to boot into single-user mode
to do system maintenance or emergency recovery, you'll have all the power
of Perl at your disposal!  :-)

More recent Perl 5 binaries for 11i can be obtained from the Liverpool
archive.
