[perl #23735] Perl 5.8.0 for Windows98

I  have downloaded this version of Perl from's download icon.

It appeared to successfully download and copy all files.

There are several "perl" appliations.  Some create a window. Some do not.
 Those that do, do not respond to such simple lines as "perl -w" executed from C:\PERL\BIN\EG.  Neither do they respond to
"perl -v".

I was told that I need to install this version before I can use it, but
find NO application or bat file to do the install.  What is the correct
procedure for installing my copy of Perl 5.8?

This is a CRITICAL matter, as I cannot use the version of Perl without -
apparently - doing the install.

So, How do I install it?
>From which directory do I 'run' it?
Which application or .bat file do I use to 'use' it?

Please answer soon, I am frustrated.  I have used Perl on Unix without
problem, but seem stymied in getting it to work on MS-Windoze.

Kind Regards,
Steve Rathkopf
