:newbie: questions


I have just installed perl5 on Mandrake 10.0.

The location of the program is ' /usr/bin' but there is no icon on my desktop. Please give me a hint where and how I can open Perl.

And: I thougt '/usr' is the shortcut from 'user'. Is it now a folder?

Thanks for any help.

...no. I make it a little bit clearer: I think I have to open Perl in Shell but I don't know which file from Perl I have to open-or access or what ever. Because If i go now in '/usr/bin' I cannot open any folder from Perl...
Help

PERL is an interpreted language and /usr/bin/perl being the interpreter. It isn't an IDE.

You can use any text editor to create a perl script and then execute it from the command line.

Here is a tutorial
