If you run and it doesn't tell you it can't run the program, 
it means you /HAVE/ installed Perl!
Anyway, it is supposed to act like this; without any arguments it will 
show you how to use the program. Try it with a image file and it will 
show you almost all EXIF information. To only get the fields you want, 
use -<fieldname>
There are also a few options that help you with importing the data into 
a spreadsheet. Read through the documentation a bit and you'll find out 
there's a lot more to exiftool than just showing file-info :-)
