How did you "accidentally" do that ? Anyway, just update your system software and you will get the OS X Perl installation back again. – Paul R Mar 19 '12 at 21:59
@yrosen is there a way like "apt-get install perl" on Mac? I don't have the installation disk. – Terminal User Mar 19 '12 at 22:05

See @yrosen's link to a similar question on SuperUser above - you can use Pacifist to extract the relevant packages. – Paul R Mar 19 '12 at 22:08
