I believe if you want to run perl scripts that don't require the use of a browser, you don't need to install apache (anyone, please correct me if I'm wrong).

If you're wanting to run a cgi program you'll need to install apache, which is a web server. This will enable you to run cgi scripts on your local computer. You can download a binary version of apache at http://www.apache.org/dist/binaries/ Simply select your operating system.

To perl a script you DO NOT NEED a browser.

But its nice to have a browser so you can see the html part of it.

I use editplus to write and compile my script. I have the perl.exe link to my editplus so that way I can compile my scripts in editplus
www.editplus.com

And if you need help setting up apache to run cgi(s) and SSI then ask.
