On ActiveState Perl v5.6.0 for windows...
in reply to Re: Copying Perl
in thread Copying Perl
Perl itself is 20kb, but the Perl560.dll is 648kb on Windows 2000. I think you have to have it to run. Even if you did copy perl.exe, you'd need to make sure it got into the %PATH% environment variable, or was in the same directory as the script. I think it would be easier to just distribute ActivePerl and the script together.
This is perl, v5.6.0 built for MSWin32-x86-multi-thread
(with 1 registered patch, see perl -V for more detail)
