Installing Perl

Installation of Perl

Install Perl by running the following commands:

./Configure -Dprefix=/usr &&
make &&
make install

If you don't want to answer all those questions Perl asks, you can add the -d option to the configure script and Perl will use all the default settings. To avoid the Configure script asking questions after the file has been created you can pass the -e parameter to perl as well. The commands with these parameters included will be:

./Configure -Dprefix=/usr -d -e &&
make &&
make install


The Perl package contains Perl - Practical Extraction and Report Language


Perl combines the features and capabilities of C, awk, sed and sh into one powerful programming language.
