after starting ppm, type:

help profiles

and I think you will find the answer.

Re: [KevinR] after install Perl.. next what to do? [In reply to] Can't Post

thanks for reply.

actually, i just install the perl on windows 2000. then i go to write a perl script (hello.pl) when i try to run ii, i call the windows command prompt and then i type

perl hello.pl

and it works fine.

My questions:

1. Do i need to set the path? how?

2. Do i need to install module using ppm? how?

3. Do i need to install cpan? how?

4. what lese i need to configure my perl program?

5. Could perl works like visual basic, have the GUI Note: i'm Visual basic user...

what i want is simple... as long as i can write and use the PERL to make an exe file then i already contented



pls guide and thanks

If you mean the shebang line, the path to perl, windows does not use it.

2. Do i need to install module using ppm? how?

Yes, install modules using ppm. Read the ppm help files that come with your distribution of activestate perl.

3. Do i need to install cpan? how?

As far as I know, you don't need to install cpan.

4. what lese i need to configure my perl program?

Nothing.

5. Could perl works like visual basic, have the GUI Note: i'm Visual basic user...

I do not understand your question. I am not a Visual Basic user.

what i want is simple... as long as i can write and use the PERL to make an exe file then i already contented

Usually you don't make your perl scripts into exe's but you can if you want to.


pls guide and thanks

open up the activestate/activestateperl folder wherever you installed it on your computer and read the documentation. It comes with all sorts of tutorials, documentation, examples, lots and lots of useful information.

Good day

ead the ppm help files that come with your distribution of activestate perl.
how to do that?? Should type what command in command pompt?

open up the activestate/activestateperl folder wherever you installed it on your computer and read the documentation. It comes with all sorts of tutorials, documentation, examples, lots and lots of useful information.
i search my computer, inside my perl folder only has bin, eg,html, lib and site directories.

inside the C:\Perl\site\lib i could see the activePerl and ActiveState folders but the contents are the files end with extension .pm.

SO how to read the documentation?



Thanks for reply.

not the perl folder, the activestate[b/] folder. On my windows computer, I installed perl on the c: drive. The activestate folder is also on the c: drive:

c:\Activestate Activeperl 5.8

open that folder (or the one similar to it on your computer) and then open the "documentation" folder. All the activestate (and perl) documentation is in there, including how to use ppm. You can also visit the activestate website and read the same documentation online.

Thanks for your time.

I search through all my drive i cant find the ActiveState folder. (only can find the Perl directory)

Wondering is it my installation correct or not.

I type perl -v in command prompt it showed the version of the perl (v5.8.7)

did you download and install activestate perl from the activestate website? Or did you install a different perl distribution?

Well, I have no idea why you don't have the activestate folder, unless it's named something else or it's simply not installed. But like I said before, you can read the documentation online.
