Having trouble running scripts on Mac OS X. Any help?

Hey, I'm really new to the perl world, so please be kind! :)

I just got ActivePerl, and I'm just trying to run a basic script. But I can't get anything to work of any sorts whatsoever. My .pl files just appear as a normal text file, and when I click on them to open, nothing happens except the text of the file appears. That's it. Obviously I'm doing something wrong, or missing something really simple. I'm good like that. Any Mac gurus out there?
