I should have elaborated on that, sorry for the vague explanation. The script is running on a server I don't have root access to and no additonal modules may be installed. I may use those already in place but can not install additonal ones.
The constraint was expressed because there would be obvious choices for some stuff that I'm doing like e.g. BerkeleyDB or a forkmanager supporting shared data structs, which I cannot use.
EDIT: fixed word mix-up

Installing anything requires a painful neverending process with dozens of people and tons of paperwork (thx ITIL/ISO) that has never yielded any positive results in the past. Technically speaking I guess I could copy paste the source code into files and thereby recreate them in my homedir, but I haven't looked into that to be honest.
