Install Perl by running the following commands:
./Configure -Dprefix=/usr &&
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 config.sh 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 &&
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.
