Is Perl included with HP-UX? Added: 04/09/01


Yes, HP-UX releases 10.10 through 11.10 are shipped with Perl v4.0.1.8.
11.11 comes with Perl 5.005_02. The perl executable is
/usr/contrib/bin/perl. A little known gem of knowledge is that the Perl
4
exectuable that is included with 10.10 through 11.10 is statically
linked!
Since the binary is only 532k, you should consider the option of placing
a copy in /sbin. That way, if you ever need to boot into single-user
mode
to do system maintenance or emergency recovery, you'll have all the power
of Perl at your disposal! :-)

Perl 5.6.0 binaries for 10.20 and 11.x can be obtained from on the
Liverpool archive.
