[sf-perl] A beginners' Question

I read PerlDocs and this is what I tried:

1.  chdir "c:\\sqlscr";
2.  my $target = readlnk("Multi_SQL.pl");
3.  system "Perl $target";

I received a fatal error that line 2 (above) contained a call to an
"Undefined Subroutine".  I couldn't tell from Perl Docs what I should have
included (require...?).

Can you give me some insight.
