in thread Portable perl: usb thumbdrive

I have software on the machine I must have access to for doing my job, so switching back in forth between linux and windows is too much hassle.

Second, 98% of the machines have the bios locked down and cd booting disabled to prevent such practices.

On the flip side, we are able to mount and use usb pen drives.

What do you mean WinCE?? Are you talking about a handheld?

    Indeed, booting from your own media is not always possible.

    When speaking about WinCE, I namely had in mind perl on handheld, see http://perlce.sourceforge.net/cgi-bin/perlce-tcltkce-wiki.pl?Happy_Screenshots
    Should I mention that I wrote my CJK-English dictionary with unihan.txt interface while I was bored in a fitness-centre? :):):)
    Other two there also?

    However "perlce" on Wince has its own sloppy places, but let us leave listing them onto another meditation :)
