    A perfect infinitive is [to] + [have] + [past particple]. It is often used as an adjective complement describing an attribute in the past.

    John was the first student to have scored 100% on my final examination.

    I was very pleased to have done that.

    I was happy to have met John at the meeting.

    It is also used for something in the past that did not occur.

    He was to have appointed a Chancellor by last month.
