I'll assume you're on windows....

Briefly, take a look at http://www.perl.com/pace/pub/perldocs/latest.html 

    If you have vc++ or borland c++, just go to www.perl.com, and download the link for the latest release.  unexpand the file with winzip (or
    something else that understands .tar.gz files and long file names). Read the README.win32 file, and follow the directions therein.

    If you don't have a c compiler, download http://www.perl.com/CPAN-local/ports/win32/Standard/x86/perl5.00402-bindist04-bc.zip 

    or

    http://www.perl.com/CPAN-local/ports/win32/Standard/x86/perl5.00402-bindist04-bc.tar.gz 

    unpack it with winzip, and take a look at the readme file and follow the directions in there under install
