in reply to Is it possible to image the perl from one box to another

If the machines are binary-compatible and are running the same OS with the same set of libraries installed, it may be sufficient to just create a tarball (or zipfile) of the entire Perl installation, and unpack it on the target machines (on Unix you generally have to unpack it into the same directory that it was installed originally, because the installation path in hard-coded in the perl binary).

If you have modules that depend on 3rd-party shared libraries installed in other locations (e.g. database libs), you have to transfer them as well.

Update: useful tools for investigating shared library dependencies: ldd on Linux/Unix, Dependency Walker on Windows.

    btw, for strawberry perl, even same paths in not a requirement, there's in the strawberry root directory which does the trick.
