setting up popfile


Yay, I have linux running. Now being a noob, does anyone know how to set up popfile (the freeware anti spam program). I've downloaded the linux (cross platform version) but don't know how to make the executable, popfile.pl run on startup, or run at all for that matter.

Thank you.

to make it executable type:
chmod +x popfile.pl
also, you need to make sure it is in your $path, so move it to something like /usr/local/bin
