Don't reinvent the wheel. Use ExtUtils::MakeMaker to install scripts.

    IlyaM++ you're right, of course. I remember the documentation to ExtUtils::MakeMaker being huge, though, and assuming changing the shebang line is all that needs to be done for the install (yeah, right), I'd probably prefer to write a small script like this one rather than pull in a module and use that.

    Of course, having said that, I do know that there are issues with my own snippet, and that everything it does is done better by MakeMaker, but false laziness and an eye toward getting this over with and getting back to work tell me that repackaging and redeploying stuff for every update (as well as installing MakeMaker on all the target boxen) is more work.

    Update: to continue with my habit of pointing out my own fallacies, I would note that the fact that I spend a nontrivial amount of time reading and commenting on PM nodes, as well as chatterboxing or just following interesting CB conversations, should prompt me to keep my mouth shut about "getting this over with and getting back to work"...
