    1. Download a Perl Interpreter. That will allow you to learn while executing your scripts at your home. Visit www.perl.com for information about this.

    2. Assuming you don't want to download the above OR you want to convince yourself by uploading the files to some host and trying it out, one recent site I remember is WebJump (www.webjump.com). You can find out about free hosting services which allow you to execute your own CGI/PL files by visiting sites listing free web hosting services (thefreesite.com is a good starting place).

    3. Try sites like www.mycgiserver.com which allow you to store your CGI files at their servers assuming you have all other files of your site at some other host. When I last checked, they mentioned something like "change of plans"...you'll have to check it out for the present status.

    I'm going to suggest if you are learning Perl NOT to do it by writing CGI until you are very comfortable using modules and error checking.

    Trying to build webscripts is a sure way to aggravate the heck out of yourself. A lot of extra things can go wrong that will just make it harder to learn Perl. And depending on where you look for teaching materials, you can easily run into a lot of bad teachers.

    Check the very first listings under "Binaries" on Outside Links for a bunch of different binaries that will run Perl on your computer. If you are running Linux, chances are you've already got perl loaded. On the same page are lots of excellent links to tutorials and help.

    Try searching for a good free host here.
    I personally use www.yourdomain.f2s.com which i found there.
