I am a newbie trying to write Perl scripts in Linux environment:

question is, why is Perl evaluating my " (quotes) as ? (question marks) ? ,
i.e. like in a simple string " blah blah blah"

do I have to be in certain shell if using a Linux-based environment. It
works fine on my NT box with basic command line


perl -w <script file>.

yours truly,

BoneHead Johnson
