Virtual MachineWe use a virtual machine in class. While you are welcome to program on your own computer, your files MUST run in the virtual machine. It is a good idea to work there, but if you don't, you should test often.
You can access the virtual machine at https://ischoolvcl.umd.edu.
Perl on your own machineYou will need libraries and other things I have installed on the Virtual Machine. However, if you want to test your files on your own machine before moving them to the virtual machine, you can install your own version of perl. NOTE: I am only going to support perl on the virtual machine (which means I can't help you if you install it or debug it locally - there are too many variables), so you are pretty much on your own if you go this route.
If you have a Mac, perl is already on your machine. Go to the Terminal application. You can run perl on the command line there just like on the virtual machine.
If you have Windows, you might try ActivePerl.
