in thread Perl Babysteps 1: Your First Simple Script
It should be emphasized that Perl must be installed first or nothing will happen when you run hello.pl
Exactly how should it be emphasized more than it already is? The second section is titled in big, bold letters: Installing Perl
This section provides 4 different pointers on installing Perl.
The install section is followed by the section which tells you to run hello.pl. The author reasonably assumes that the sections are read in order.
