in reply to Self contained Perl environment

Do you already know pp and PAR::Packer?

They help you to create a single executable which contains all the stuff of your application to run as a standalone app.

I think, there are some limitations (especially regarding OS (e.g. Linux <=> WinDOS) and maybe library versions (e.g. glibc), but it may be worth a try.

I think you have the same limitations, when creating your own environment...

update:
  • reordered modules; replaced PAR with PAR::Packer
  • minor text changes

    ActiveState has a program which packages your executable and environment and will run anyplace. I packaged it on Windows and moved it to a Linux machine and it worked fine. I didn't need to install anything on Linux.
