    While Carton indeed looks interesting at the moment I don't like that it installs dependencies into a "local" directory.

    As at the moment I want to install the modules into their default location I think I'll just go with calls to CPAN->install which when I think about it should be good enough for me.

      Is this application part of the system installation? If not, what happens when the underlying OS updates its libraries to something incompatible with your application?

      I typically recommend that you not rely on the core Perl install, but instead consider it as part of your application, and install all of the required modules as part of your application stack -- especially if this application is an internal application, or you can enforce that requirement on your customers.

      If you application is external, and you are not able to dictate a Perl installation apart from the OS, then it starts to get a little dicey.
