What is the perl corelist?

Every release of perl includes some commonly used modules, for example CPAN, file system utilities like File::Spec, File::Find.
The module Module::CoreList contains a database with a list of these modules for every perl release.
Module::CoreList itself is delivered with perl since version 5.8.9, and it comes with a command line utility script corelist.
