Can I run Perl on my computer?
Probably. Perl runs on everything from Amigas to Macintoshes to Unix boxen. Perl also runs on Microsoft operating systems, namely Windows 95, Windows 98 and Windows NT 3.51 and later. There are versions of Perl that run on earlier versions of these operating systems but they are no longer developed or supported. See http://www.perl.com/ for full details.
