- Install Perl, if needed.
- Most Unix platforms, including Macintosh OSX, already have a Perl interpreter installed.
- Binaries are available here.
- Install the Query.pm Perl module from CPAN:
- Create a .netrc or _netrc file in the home directory of the user running the Perl script.
- The netrc file provides credentials for the API to use to authenticate to the server, required to read or modify tables in secure folders.
