You will need to have PERL either on your machine, or on a UNIX machine you have access to.

Check out http://www.perl.org/ for more info. You can download PERL from there too if you need it.

I also recommend the "Learning PERL" book from O'Reilley (sp?) and Associates.

I'm using CGI 101.

I need to learn HOW to get access to a server,NOT just whether I can do Perl or not.

I've never heard of that book. It's actually been a while since I've done any PERL. I used the O'Reilly books and reading PERL resources on the net to learn my PERL.

Dude,
I am confused by your statement about telnet. Are you logging into a Unix box or is your question about how to log in or where to log in to?
If you are logged in, you need to know where Perl was installed on the system, or if it even was for that matter. Your sysadmin may be able to help you with this. You can always do a find for perl* but asking someone is probably quicker.
Once you have found the perl interpreter, just follow your book and everthing should be fine. If you don't know vi you may have to edit the files on your PC and FTP them to the Unix system.
Good Luck Dude,

I'm trying to find out how to log in to a Unix shell.

I have Perl 5.6.1 installed on my C:\ drive.

Dude,
Do you have access to a Unix server?
