Your problem is not the client machine, as there are many Perl-Modules out there doing the dirty work for you (including Net::FTP).

Your problem is the server side: you need one or more protocols there to make your files accessible to your client. If you manage to run FTP (or HTTP, or whatever) on your *nix and Windows machines and manage to access those files with standard client software, the perl stuff to automate that all is quite simple (if you read your documentation).

If you have chosen one or more protocols for your servers, managed to run them and still have trouble with your client side perl, come back and you will be helped.

[haukex]: I figure someone who wants to contribute will know how to install the missing modules ;-) Not the nicest way to go but I don't think many people are using my modules yet
[ambrus]: Corion: some of these stupid syntax highlighters assume that too. just look at the table in http://perldoc. functions/pack. html for example.
[haukex]: ..."yet" ;-) I haven't had to deal with Dist::Zilla yet but I've heard about how it's a big setup
[ambrus]: I really don't like automagic stuff. I'm happy when computers do exactly what I tell them, even if that means they sometimes do the wrong thing.
[ambrus]: And I don't much like syntax highlighters. If you need a syntax highlighter to understand your code, then your code is written unclear.
[ambrus]: And if you need a syntax highlighter to color parenthesis green and numbers black and letters blue, then you're using the wrong font.
[ambrus]: I have to tolerate syntax highlighters when other people use them, but I don't use them myself. And sorry for the rant.
