Monks, I'm wondering if its possible to have a self-contained Perl installation for my app that uses its own set of modules outside of the base distribution on a server. Some customers I'm working with don't allow me to install Perl modules on they're server, but I need SOAP::Lite, XML::WRITER and XML::Writer::String which are not currently installed. So I'm thinking taring up my own mini Perl environment with 5.10 and all the modules I need to run in a self-contained environment.
Are there any gotcha's here to consider. Any best ways to go about this so my app only ever uses the Perl I deployed as far as paths? Is is possible to call Perl something like:
Where I install all my stuff to /usr/local/selfcontained/ or wherever..
