manpages, difference between 1 and 1p


For package eekboek, Lintian signals a manpage-section-mismatch: the manpage 
for a command advertises itself as 1p but is placed in 1. In order to resolve 
this properly I was wondering what the exact distinction is. When is something 
in section n, and when in n'p'? For example, this is a command in the path. 
Should the end user know that it is implemented in perl per se? Guidance 
appreciated as I'm having trouble finding more details about these sections.
