Where?


I know i have the latest version of Perl installed on my computer because i have checked via Synaptic Package Manager and via a terminal using: Perl -v. But could someone tell me where the software is actually stored. I have tried looking for: /usr/local/bin/perl/ but failed. I am running Ubuntu. Thanks

/usr/bin/perl give the location of the perl interpretor, many programing books mention the location as usr/loacl/bin/perl, but this is not correct in ubuntu.
In ubuntu perl interpretor is located at usr/bin/perl.

so neglect that, write a perl script and then run.
