In order to run a Perl application in Windows, a Perl-Distribution for Windows is needed.[1] The following article shows the installation and use of Strawberry Perl[2][3] in Windows.

Installation

The msi-Installer can be directly downloaded from http://strawberryperl.com/ or http://strawberry-perl.googlecode.com/files/strawberry-perl-5.16.3.1-64bit.msi. The following gallery of images will demonstrate the installation process:

Execute Perl

C:\Users\tktest>perl -V
Summary of my perl5 (revision 5 version 16 subversion 3) configuration:

  Platform:
    osname=MSWin32, osvers=4.0, archname=MSWin32-x64-multi-thread
    uname='Win32 strawberry-perl 5.16.3.1 #1 Tue Mar 12 12:12:07 2013 x64'

A short test-script checks the execution of Perl:

#!/bin/perl -w
print "Hello World";
C:\Users\tktest\Documents>perl test.pl
