    I've written a simple perl-script which is supposed to run on a
    win32-platform. What exactly do I need to do to make this script run?
    I get an error message saying that my script is not a valid win32
    application. I'm also trying to connect to an Oracle database using
    DBI. What am I doing wrong?

    You don't say whether you installed a Perl interpreter, or if so, which one.

    I use the free download from Once this is
    installed, all perl scripts are directly executable, so long as you use
    the expected filename extension ".pl".
