plshelpme is on a distinguished road

I am used to programming on Red Hat Linux. I'm trying to figure out how to program on my mac, and I've found about a thousand ads on the apple website telling me that my computer came with Perl and Python and the GCC 4.0 compiler. Only I can't find files for these anywhere. Does anyone know what should go in the #! line for Perl? Or why gcc/cc only give me "command not found" on the command line ("which gcc" replies "no gcc in /bin /sbin /usr/bin /usr/sbin /usr/local/bin /usr/local/teTeX/bin/i386-apple-darwin-current" and I can't find the library files either)? I'm less familiar with Python, but if someone could get me going on that, I'd take it. I'm just trying to do some desktop programming and have no interest in working in some sort of GUI environment.

Also (other assorted questions), how do I update my path? And is there any editor I can use other than emacs? (xemacs, nedit don't seem to be around)

I'd really appreciate any help anyone could give me.
