OK guys, I've missed something somewhere! I have !Perl 1.12 and !Perl 1.13, have followed the instructions on installation, i.e. merge the system file, etc. but get nothing in return except a directory full of script files which do nothing when I double click on the LLama! I know you've had some success on running !Perl scripts David, so any idea what Im doing wrong? John, I have purchased my own domain, with cgi-bin in my area and support for MySQL, so that's a start - I think the problem with Yahoo and BT is that you don't get this support unless you pay for it. I have also purchased "Learning Perl" to get me off the ground (who do I think I'm kidding!!). Any hints/tips on where to find instructions on getting !Perl up and running at RiscOS level would be appreciated. Regards, Bryan.
