    ActiveState Perl comes in two forms, assuming a windows system install and that you got the distribution from ActiveState: One is an msi install package, and the other is a zip file which you extract. The msi package takes care of some things for you that you would have to do by hand if you get the zip file. You can find both here -> ActiveState Site

    Hope that helps ... .

    • ...the majority is always wrong, and always the last to know about it...
    • The Spice must flow...
    • ..by my will, and by will alone.. I set my mind in motion
      after you extract zip, you run .bat file to install
        okay, thank you, but where exactly can I find the .bat file. I looked but I don't think I have seen anything with a .bat extension. Now, that question will only apply if this one is a no. Is this what the interpreter should look like. http://i11.tinypic.com/4pbv0hz.jpg

    Other than... what?!? Also, in your OP you write that "it says it is installed": it... what? The computer? The installation program? And then, how are you searching the interpreter? How are you failing to find it? For a "normal" install, the AS binaries directory is added to the path, thus under cmd.exe (or command.com, if you're on an older Windoze) it's enough that you type perl script.pl and it should work just fine. Also try perl -v just to see if it's there.
