How do I install Perl?

I am creating my Intranet, my OS is Windows NT4 Workstation. I downloaded Apache but I don't have Perl so my CGI can't be executed.
I downloaded something called Perl5.005_02 and have no idea what to do with, how do I install it and where?

Then, how am I supposed to authorize the cgi (chmod xxx) as they are on my computer? Do I have to authorize CGI in order for it to run on my computer?

What operating system do you use. Unix already have perl installed
Install windows version (www.perl.com) and modify Apache config files in httpd/conf directory
You need to find a Perl for NT installation...

see url


for an implementation of perl 4.xxxx for NT..

I haven't had much luck with it though...

another good reference point is url   http://www.4images.com/ntperl/index.htm

they've got different version of Perl for NT (which I haven't tried) online there...

 good luck
