    Any of you know how to start up PERL from the Terminal in OS X 10.2?

    Isn't perl there??
    does "perl file.pl" work??
    My Mac is in the shop now, so I can't check it, but perl should be there...

    Yep, perl is there, type:
    man perl
    for more info.
    like nucleuz said, to runa perl script type:
    perl file.pl

    I have found I need to type ./ in front of the perl script filename when I want to run the script from the terminal. (That is, when I'm in the same directory as the script.)
    Like this: ./file.pl

    I don't have to type 'perl' first.

    You're basically executing it through the shell, which then starts up perl for you, the same as typing perl myscript.pl
