Perl Programming Help:
What is Perl diver?
Mar 12, 2001, 2:34 PM
I am embarrased to ask this question. Of course I never intended to get into Perl, but if I am going to play with these web sites I guess I have too!
I am having trouble with the output from a great script that I am using. I was asked by the writer of the script "What version of Perl am I using?" and that I could find out by using "Perl diver."
What is "Perl diver?" Is there a way to find out what version of perl is being used on my server from my browser? I have always used WS-ftp to upload my files.
I hope this question doesn't lead to another "Learning Experience", but it looks like it will!
Have a Great Day!
I can't believe I am even trying to understand Perl!

PerlDiver is a program that outputs some information about your server, some Perl-specific information (such as its version), and installed Perl modules on your server.
But it may be overkill for what you need :)
The easiest ways to find out what version of Perl is installed are
1) Type perl -v at the command line (assuming you have shell access)
2) Ask your server administrator :)
Hope this helps!
