Perl is an interpretted language so you must have a program to feed it for it to work correctly. If you are running perl, it should open up a window and await input.

For tutorials on learning perl, perform a Google search and you should get a whole bunch. The same goes for C/C++.

What compiler are you using for C/C++? Probably gcc or g++ (g++ is a link to gcc with some flags set for C++). gcc is different. It requires source code to begin with to compile into an executable.

Please refer to my other post in your other thread, where you asked about perl and everything else.

at this stage in the game a beginners book to unix would be your best friend. I think you would find it well worth your time and sanity if you started at your local book store.

(but then again I offten think if your just another troll. every board has them)
