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.
