1. Download a Perl Interpreter. That will allow you to learn while executing your scripts at your home. Visit 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 ( 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 ( is a good starting place).

3. Try sites like 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"'ll have to check it out for the present status.

[stevieb]: did my pull request challenge today, Locale::gettext. Weird layout for a dist, and I have no idea how to use it, but it's always nice when you can force someone else's work be use strict; and use warnings; compliant :)
[stevieb]: ahem... s/no idea how to use it/didn't read enough as to what it's used for/
[stevieb]: interestingly enough, someone else got my Devel::Examine:: Subs distribution for their PRC, and I applaud the change. This dist is extremely complicated and mostly obfu, but the person doing it understood PPI enough to change...
[stevieb]: ...something I had overlooked in the extreme depths of the core functionality. After merging, then a couple of extra tweaks, I still have 100% test coverage. Yay for people who write tests!
