    Just my point.

    With the possible exception of ExtUtils::MakeMaker, there's no "definitive" answer to creating a CPAN distribution containing a single Perl script, designed for utilitarian purposes.

    All the other references you provided. Were inconclusive.

    --Chris

    #!/usr/bin/perl -Tw
    use Perl::Always or die;
    my $perl_version = (5.12.5);
    print $perl_version;

      If you're adverse to looking at the source code of existing CPAN examples (there are many), get a copy of O'Reilly's Mastering Perl, and read the chapter named Modules as Programs.

      If you need to know how to make the distribution itself, Intermediate Perl covers that as well, though perlmodstyle and ExtUtils::MakeMaker cover most of it.

      taint true again. First you say "no info", then you say "inconclusive", so it couldn't have been your point.

      This is what hundreds of others have done is about as definitive as you can get with customs

      IMHO, modulinos are the most useful
