Question Help needed in Perl

I want to learn Perl and many sources I have referred have pointed out that I have to have a server which provides CGI scripting to test my Perl code...
Is that absolutely necessary?.....Can I tweak something on my Linux box?
And if it is ....can anyone tell me which site provides such hosting?

You don't need a server, you can run the perl package on your own PC.

You said you use Linux? What distro? Almost certaintly, PERL is already installed (though probably not the most recent version). Try typing 'perl' in the shell. If it does not give you an error message but says something like 'perl: no input files' or just has a blinking cursor on a clear field then PERL is installed.

You can create .pl files and write PERL code in them. Then, run them by typing 'perl <filename ending with .pl>'
Dump proprietary software and be free!
