in thread Answer: Unix SetUp?
To LEARN perl, you can use any machine or none at all. To USE perl, including all of the builtin functions and take advantage of ALL functionality, yes, you'll need a UN*X or a derivative thereof. Considering that your question has little if anything to do with Perl and the fact that you don't provide enough information, it's impossible to help you further. While I certainly don't want to dismay you from using your "UNIX", perhaps this would be a good time to ask for the help of someone that can sit and tackle the problems at the computer.
