Where does Perl live? - Sun Solaris

On a standard Solaris system, where does perl live? /usr/local /usr/local/bin .....or somewhere else? I don't think it is /usr/local/bin as this is the current line 1 of vncserver, and it doesn't appear to work. I would like to know for the minute I walk through the door tomorrow!! I am trying to configure VNC, and as per an earlier post have managed to sort out the ^M issue engendered by Windows :-(, but it needs it's location of perl sorting out in line 1 of the script. Any ideas? As you might guess I ain't no systems administrator, but ...

    sort out the ^M issue engendered by Windows :-(, but it needs it's location
    of perl sorting out in line 1 of the script.
    Any ideas?

    As you might guess I ain't no systems administrator, but I am learning very
    quickly!!

    But SUN now has perl aswell as a lot of other GNU/Opensource tools
    "inside" Solaris.


    $ find /usr -name perl

    search for it.....and failing that I'll install it.

    I couldn't wait and have dialled onto our system, and perl is not there.
    What is the best way of installing it?

    Then look in the 3:e column if it is 5.8 you are using Solaris 8 which
    includes SunOS 5.8, Solaris is a boundled package of UNIX and Windows
    and more.

    Did the find command say nothing?

    Hi,
    Could someone explain what this command is supposed to do and how it
    differs from running without the exec option? I looked at find(1) but it
    doesn't make much sense to me... Thanks!

    #find / -name perl
    /usr/bin/perl
    /usr/perl5/5.6.1/bin/perl
    /usr/perl5/5.00503/bin/perl
    /opt/sfw/docs/ref/perl
    #find / -name perl -exec ls {} \;
    /usr/bin/perl
    /usr/perl5/5.6.1/bin/perl
    /usr/perl5/5.00503/bin/perl

    So what did uname -a say?

    Are you root on the machine or are you a user?
