There used to be one page on the IBM AS/400 website describing the AS/400
port of PERL. You had to write a CL program and call it as I recall. You
can also call perl directly from within Net.Data. If this is the port that
you got from CPAN, it is VERY limited in function. It cannot handle STDIN
and STDOUT properly, cannot handle redirection, or named pipes.
I have heard that there will be another port of PERL to the AS/400 that
provides full UNIX compatibility now that the AS/400 supports full
STDIN/STDOUT and threads.
The port you have will run most of PERL fine. I ran it under Net.Data until
I realized that I didn't want to learn PERL. There is a section in the
Net.Data reference guide available via http://www.as400.ibm.com/netdata that
shows how to call PERL via a Net.Data macro.

I've installed Perl on one of our AS/400's. How do I call a Perl script
from our web server (ICSS on V4R2)?

What AS/400 IP services do you run?
