learning Perl and running script on WinXP Pro IIS
Hi all,

Can i firstly say, i am a nooB to Perl.

I am looking to learn the language on my WinXP Pro (IIS) machine.

I was looking for a few tips or good links that some of you may know of.

Also, can i run Perl scripts on IIS without problems? if not, what do i need to do?

Not sure on the links, but I too am a infrequent user (I've use perl a few times a year).

I'd plug the book from WROX: Professional Perl Programming. I found it at my local library and found it tremendously useful -- though it helps to have played around a bit first. I've just ordered my own copy

Not sure that helps, but I always start with a check of the local libraries.

thanks carterco, i have installed ActivePerl onto my Win machine and Perl scripts can run A-OK!!

however, in the same way that ASP code can be embedded within HTML code i.e



Can this be done with perl?? Or does the table have to be written in Perl, i.e. print "<tr>"; etc.....

You'd need to use a templating system like HTML::Template to do what your describing, its freely downloadable from CPAN.

thanks (again!) charlie. i had a look at that Module on cpan.org. Installed it. quite good. saves me from having to print "<table>"; and stuff like that all the time - which was tedious. how much, second-hand, would i be looking to pay for WROX: "Professional Perl Programming"?
