Perl missing on CentOS 7 minimal install

When trying to install some Nagios plugins on my minimal CentOS 7 host, I was frustrated for a while when the plugins failed to run with errors about:

use: command not found.

As it turns out, my CentOS 7 system didn’t include perl at all.

The resolution was to simply install perl by running: yum install perl
