"Citrus Perl can re-package itself as a new distribution including your own modules."
Wow, this sounds tasty.

"Cava Packager allows packaging of applications written in Perl. Packaged applications can be distributed without the need for an installation of Perl on the target machine."
Is this "a bit similar" to having a CPAN mirror on my computer?

Is it possible, with perlall, to have different version on Perl installed ? Like a Strawberry v5.12, and a Citrus v5.16 ?

PS : i'm going out for two or three hours, will try to re-install v5.12.3 when i'm back.

    Kinda :)

    CPAN is a source repository, with citrus/cava you'd be distributing binaries

    Its like creating your own CitrusPerl or CavaPackager or Strawberryperl or ActivePerl

    one monkey loads up all the modules and dlls required and creates an .exe users can install and use (cavapackager)

    Or one monkey loads up all the modules and development tools and creates a perl his fellow developers can download and use (citrusperl -- different audience)

    You need a special license to redistribute ActivePerl binaries, but thats free with citrus/strawberry

    CavaPackager is IMHO more polished than PAR/PAR::Packer, and unlike Strawberryperl, Citrusperl targers linux and mac osx too

    Pinto OTOH is like having your own curated CPAN mirror -- if you're working with a team, dealing with multiple platforms, compiling everything from source can make sense, it can even have "licensing" advantages
