How do I just DOWNLOAD PERL

The ActiveState Platform is a Build-system-as-a-service, or another way of thinking of it; a way to treat your Perl/Python/Tcl/Ruby language as software, and manage it the same way you would manage your code repository. Static downloads don’t do that.

ActiveState Perl is now for professional developers only. The philosophy is now “Goodbye and good riddance” to those of us who have used Perl at home for decades to produce reports.

For real man. I just wasted 2 hours of my time trying to figure out how to just download it like previous versions. Never coming back here again and I’m recommending to my vendors to remove the Active State recommendation from their documentation.

Right I’ve been using active state for years. Just trying to install it to a new machine. I ran the state utility and it did something but I can’t find perl anywhere.

Thank you for this. I downloaded it and it ran the scripts I needed no additional modules necessary in 5 min.
