in reply to START PERL

Hi smaz, welcome the Monastery.

Strawberry perl should show up on your 'All programs' menu, and display a number of options including links to the Strawberry Perl documentation, the perl documentation, the cpan shell and a Windows command prompt, from where you can run your perl scripts, e.g. c:\perl

In addition to the Strawberry perl links you should now see on your computer you should check out:

Others have pointed you towards various IDE solutions, if you take a look at what each has to offer I'm sure you'll find one that suits you. Padre is a Perl IDE written in Perl. To start with a text editor with Syntax_highlighting (such as notepad++) may suffice.

You may have noticed some messages saying you've lost an experience point, don't worry too much about this (see The Role of XP in PerlMonks). It looks as though your post has received a few 'down votes' from other users, I'm sure this is purely based on your text all being upper case. Don't take it personally or let it discourage you from posting in future. When posting just write normally, and pay attention to the Markup in the Monastery and How do I post a question effectively?. I appreciate that this (posting etiquette/formatting) may be a lot to take in all at once, on top of learning Perl but there really isn't that much too it. After a few posts it should become much easier.

Hope this helps.

Update: Added notpad++ link.
