Whether you are simply wishing to begin an investigation of the core language and your platform happens be Windows or whether you wish to look at specific-Windows integration tools such as 1) OLE [ object linking and Embedding ] with PERL, 2) control of the Windows registry via PERL, 3) using PERL to write COM [ Component Object Model ] objects, 4) communicating with pre existing COM objects from PERL, or 5) facilitating data aware pages via the PERLscript and IIS [ Internet Information Server ], your starting point remains the same - the installation of PERL on Windows. This article is intended as a guide to that process. Future additions will delve more deeply into the Windows-specific capabilities of Perl. Before you start though, we have one warning.

Perl is the Swiss Army chainsaw of scripting languages: powerful and adaptable.
I've recently started learning to play the game of Go. Go and Perl have many things in common -- the basic stuff of which they are made, the rules of the game, are relatively simple, and hide an amazing complexity of possibilities beneath the surface. But I think the most interesting thing I've found that Go and Perl have in common is that there are various different stages in your development as you learn either one. It's almost as if there are several different plateaus of experience, and you have to climb up a huge hill before getting onto the next plateau.

Perl is a dynamic programming language created by Larry Wall and first released in 1987. Perl borrows features from a variety of other languages including C, shell scripting (sh), AWK, sed and Lisp. Structurally, Perl is based on the brace-delimited block style of AWK and C, and was widely adopted for its strengths in string processing, and lack of the arbitrary limitations of many scripting languages at the time. Larry Wall began work on Perl in 1987, while working as a programmer at Unisys, and released version 1.0 to the comp.sources.misc newsgroup on December 18, 1987.
