Re: Pearl Scripting

Hi Anwar,

besides from just trying perl to see what happens or find / -name perl -print
if it is not in the PATH, you can install perl as a part of Oracle. I think, it is part of the Apache Webserver.

greetings,

Re: Pearl Scripting

In v5.1B, /usr/bin/perl is part of OSFBASE540. (this is the Base OS)
You have also the perl-runtime in /usr/lib/perl-5.8.0. The last one is an optional subset during the OS-installation.

Re: Pearl Scripting

According to me perl has to loaded separately and doesnt come with your base operating system. I had to install web server and while installing that i was needed to install perl - which is available on the OS cd of 5.1B as OSFPERL540 . so you can install that either using setld or sysman gui based software management.
I hope thats what u wanted.

Re: Pearl Scripting

To find out if Perl is ready to run, bring up a command line, then:
perl -version
By the way: This command should work with any OS....
