Write a simple Perl Program to check if Perl works. I started with the famous “Hello World” program.
Save a file with a name hello.pl . The content of this file is a one line perl code to print ‘Hello World’.
print “Hello World\n”;
The open a Terminal and type the follow command.
If Perl is installed and everything is OK, u should get something like this on the terminal.
