    I am working on learning perl and had a question I can't find answered in any books.
    I installed perl on my windows system and have been working with that but since all the websites I have are located on unix boxes I wanted to write my programs for unix.

    So I have decided to put a unix or linux system on my pc.

    My question is if I install red hat or Free USB will it be basically the same thing as unix as far as perl and .tar files?

    Yes, Linux is essentially UNIX with a GUI.

    Just intall Linux, it'll be easier for you, especially if you've never worked with any kind of Unix before.
