Hi, I heard that perl must be run in the

Open in new window

However I can run the script under my own folder

There is no restriction on Perl to run on a specific folder.

At the top of your script, you need to include the path so that it can locate the compiler.  It has to be include in your path if you want to call it like

perl program.pl

Otherwise you will have to mention your complete path.
