Mac Tiger Perl Programmers,

I'm trying to learn Perl so I can do new and wonderful things on  
Dogeared. But I can't even make "Hello, World!" appear on the display.

I have Terminal and BBedit Lite, and Perl is on the machine. I can  
make command line commands work and get results in the terminal  
window (  perl -w -e 'print "Hello, World!\n";' ), but writing a  
simple script to a file ( ) produces no results.

If you are running Perl under Tiger, or you know somebody who is and  
who would be willing to help me solve this most basic of all newbie  
problems, please let me know off-ListServ at kamins at
