PERL Path

Problem:

What is the path to PERL (interpreter)?

Solution:

The perl path is the very first line in every .cgi or .pl file. The path to the perl interpreter will be either:
        #!/usr/bin/perl
        
        or 
        
        #!/usr/local/bin/perl
        
Either of which will work.
