perl not found

This says that perl is not installed, you need to install it. In 
addition, I am not really sure what "all necessary pacakges" or "your 
software" is and what you want to do with R. Please read the posting 
guide carefully for requirements for postings to the help list. In 
addition, it seems that you have written this email on behalf of a 
class. The primary source for questions is your tutor/teacher. I'm not 
trying to be rude, but this post is not likely to get useful responses 
from the mailing list.

cheers and good luck,

Thus the installation has worked perfectly, however when trying to run the program an error message appears "Converting xls file to csv file... Error in system(cmd, intern = !verbose) : perl not found Error in file.exists(tfn) : invalid 'file' argument".
