Help on Perl


hi

I have installed RH8, and have set up the Apache and Mysql. i a, having problems in getting around Perl.
1. i have checked if it was installed bu typing perl -v, and i got the details about the version (v5.8.0). however when i try to locate where PERL is installed i cant find it.

2. the reason i notied the problem aboce, is that while i was installing php, and i downloaded the tar.gz file from the net, and attempted to configure before i installed:
./configure --with-apxs=/usr/local/apache/bin/apxs (....etc) and it did not set it as there was no APXS. i dont know if this is enough info but i would aprreciate any help.

Cheers

a `which perl` will always tell you where the perl binary is located.

mean? it means that's where perl is? you seem to be a bit unsure about all of this, why not just stick to rpm's for the time being? it's a lot easier for newbies. all the php files will alerady be on your distro cd's

Well when you do a command
>which 'filename'

This tellls you the path of the command

>whereis 'filename'

this tells you where the word 'filename' exisits

>locate 'filename' /

this searches the database that it knows where it exists. doing locate usually spits out to much info so you might want to do a pipe less ( | less)

as far as the perl mod with apache, I am uncertain the procedure of which gets installed first. Sowey about not helping the original question.
