I have 22 years experience in IT and have recently been tasked with doing a lot of coding! I am a serious DOS hacker so having to deal with Perl is a bit trivial for me but I am having a serious problem right out of the box.
I have a Sun machine on my desk now and I am trying to install a new version of perl - When I click on download (there is some weird browser I am not used to) I download the perl file thing but no installshield starts up or anything? How am I supposed to install this???
If anybody can figure this out out there that would be great! Maybe something is wrong with my system?
