Perl programming on my Mac OS

Last Modified: 2017-12-31
I understand Perl is part of my Mac OS, but I hear I would be best served to ensure any programming (learning) in Perl should be isolated so as not to upset the functioning of my El Capitan system.

What kind of installation shall I make to ensure the Perl I access from Mac Terminal does not touch any system files?
