Try going to ActiveState and downloading perl.

For editing, notepad will do fine, but there are a large number of free programmers editors out there that may make your life easier with syntax hilighting etc.

My favourite editor for the Windows environment is SynEdit - it has modules for (alomst) any programming language you care to name.

Have fun!
