in reply to START PERL

First off you need to fix your keyboard so that you can use lower case characters. Perl is case sensitive and will not like you at all if you shout at it all the time!

I have heard that Padre is a good starting point in terms of a Perl IDE.

See the Tutorials section for a pile of introductory and other stuff to get you started with Perl. Your very first Perl "script" could be as simple as typing:

perl -e "print qq{Hello world\n}"

at a Windows command line and pressing enter. If that doesn't work then you need to either add the path to the perl\bin directory to your path, or provide the full path to perl.exe.

Beyond that you need to use some form of editor to create a file with a .pl extension. Put print "Hello world\n"; in a file called "", then with your current directory set to the same directory as the file you can type perl on the command line to run it.

True laziness is hard work
