Perl Installation on Unix and Linux Platform
Here are the simple steps to install Perl on Unix/Linux machine.
Open a Web browser and go to https://www.perl.org/get.html.
Follow the link to download the zipped source code available for Unix/Linux.
Download the perl-5.x.y.tar.gz file and issue the following commands at $ prompt.
$tar -xzf perl-5.x.y.tar.gz $cd perl-5.x.y $./Configure -de $make $make test $make install
NOTE − Here $ is a Unix prompt where you type your command, so make sure you are not typing $ while typing the above-mentioned commands.
This will install Perl in a standard location /usr/local/bin and its libraries are installed in /usr/local/lib/perlXX, where XX is the version of Perl that you are using.
It will take a while to compile the source code after issuing the make command. Once the installation is done, you can issue Perl -v command at $ prompt to check Perl installation. If everything is fine, then it will display a message as we have shown above.
