Fred Brooks, in his classic "Mythical Man-Month", defined "metaprogramming" as simply a very high-level form of programming, using a language designed to call entire programs as opposed to procedures/subroutines.
He quoted AppleScript as a good example (this was back in 1995), but Perl would have been just as good. Or these days, even better, Python.
