in reply to How do I use Perl?

First you need Perl installed on your system. If you use Unix/Linux, chances are good that it already is. Otherwise, goto If you use Win32, try ActiveState. If you use a Mac, try MacPerl.

Once you have it installed, the first step to using Perl is to read perlman:perl. Also, check out for up to date documentation.

To learn Perl, buy and read Learning Perl and hang out here.

Good luck!
