Perl is not compiled the same way as something like C code is. It is interpreted (like any other script). This is a very short explanation (in a way, perl is compiled, but not into a binary file like C) though.

Just get a perl interpreter from one of those on the CPAN site:
http://www.cpan.org/ports/index.html#win32

For future reference, this is still a a forum for Unix questions. This area of the forum is for Unix to Windows interoperability, as I understand it.

Hope it helps, nonetheless.

I use the ActivateState perl "compiler" at work. It really doesn't compile the perl, though. It really wraps the perl code in a .EXE so you don't have to have all the ActiveState perl libraries installed on a machine (very handy!).
