Mac OS X

Mac OS X ships with Perl as a standard component.

Other Binaries:

OS Name / versionDefault Perl version
Mavericks (10.9) 5.16.2
Mountain Lion (10.8) 5.12.4
Lion (10.7) 5.12.3
Snow Leopard (10.6) 5.10.0
Leopard (10.5) 5.8.8
Tiger (10.4) 5.8.6+patches
Panther (10.3) 5.8.1-RC3+patches
Jaguar (10.2) 5.6.0

To build from source (or build XS modules) you need to install GCC which is available as part of "Command Line Tools for XCode", this can be installed on it's own, or from within Xcode, both of which are available from Apple Developer downloads (free registration required). Xcode can also be installed through the Mac App Store. (Note: in 10.3 you should also install the optional BSD SDK, otherwise installing new Perl modules won't work.)
