Citrus Perl is provided as a tar.gz archive for Linux and MacOSX and as a zip archive for MS Windows.
The current releases of Citrus Perl can be downloaded from the sourceforge project site.
You should read the installation information for your platform after downloading.
The archives are named with the format:
