Re: What's the best way to handle the installation and or distribution of a Perl script?by Anonymous Monk

Does it make any sense to even attempt a typical install?
Yes, absolutely, its what its for
or does it simply make more sense to make the install sub simply emit a message:
"install sub"? pointless busywork ... and annoying too (stupid computer program here, you've asked me dance, but I want YOU to dance monkey)
If in the "traditional" sense of a distribution; how might I best determine what system (OS) I'm on, in order to copy the script to a proper "bindir".
In the traditional sense of a distribution, its none of your business; let ExtUtils::MakeMaker, or Module::Install handle it for you, cause thats its job; If you still want to know, you know where to look :)
I'm guessing to the Perl dir is probably the best choice. But thought I'd ask. To get thoughts on the matter, I hadn't already considered.
