    What do you mean by your perl5 directory? if you are looking for the perl executable then type: which perl

    If you are looking for something more specific, then which operating system are you running?

    If you're on your own server then look up ^
    Uuallan mentioned the telnet command to find it.

    If your a hosting customer try this:
    /usr/bin/perl

    That usually works for most people on most servers. Failing that I'd say contact your host.

    download the attached file. (and unzip it)

    upload it to your cgi-bin

    chmod it to 755

    load it via your browser

    and it will tell you where perl is (plus other gumf)

    example of out put here

    All else fails -

    which perl (mentioned above)

    most boxes

    /usr/bin/perl or

    /usr/local/bin/perl


    or find / -name perl
    GUI admin tools have no honor. It is a good day to vi.
