in thread What's the best way to handle the installation and or distribution of a Perl script?

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.

#!/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

[LanX]: Corion: come on, people are people! ;)
[Corion]: Naah, I think it's still an OK show so far. Their new songs aren't exactly great, but I'm not going there for new material anyway ;)
[marto]: I got the feeling from the last show that for big sections of it, they were not really into what they were doing
[Corion]: LanX: Sure, they can bask in my Halo
[marto]: more so than the previous show I saw
[Corion]: marto: Well, I think they go a tour every two years and I think it's hard to even get a connection with the crowd at a 20k people concert... But maybe after this time I'll stop too ;)
[Corion]: I still have to see the Pet Shop Boys live before they stop touring at all
[marto]: yeah, I think that as a group creatively they're done. I can understand how it'd be hard to stop the process, album/tour, album/tour, if that's pretty much all you've ever done :)
[marto]: Corion yes I saw them Pandemonium_Tour
[Corion]: marto: Yeah, and I doubt that they'll ever get back to something like Violator/Songs of Faith and Devotion - it would either alienate their "regular" crowd, or be "too much Violator" ;)
