I work in an environment where developing new code is easier than attempting to get a CPAN module installed.

Wrong. If you can write a script and run it, you can install a Perl module for use with that script. There are at least two options:

  • install the module tree in the same directory with your script and use lib '.';use Module::Name;
  • for pure Perl, download the module, copy and paste the relevant bits into your script (advantage of retaining appearance of single script)

    I know I can do these things, however, doing these things are not possible given the environment I work in. Also, if I copy and paste from a module to a script, I will likely violate the license of the modules.
