[ back to toc ]

Beginner in Perl!!

Date: 2002/04/10 11:15

Please can you give me a basic idea, step by step to how I install a perl
script and get it working.

I am completely new to perl so I am getting the complete scripts that I
plan to use from internet sources.

Thank you in advance for your assistance.
You have to copy the script into the appropriate directory and RUN it

perl scriptname.pl

If this is a CGI script then you have to alter the permission of the
script file so that the CGI process can read and run it.

That is all needed. All other issues are dependent on the actual program.
