Not sure that makes sense to me. If your application can depend on opensource Perl and opensource Archive::Zip, why can't it depend on opensource zip and just system("zip") with appropriate args from Perl?

I certainly prefer to write Perl instead of execs where possible for performance/reliabilty reasons, but in this case Archive::Zip definitely is not as functional or elegant for doing exactly what you're trying to do here.

[Mj1234]: Hello Monks, I have installed Active perl 5.16 and 5.14 but I dont find Devel::GDB package when I try to install through ppm
[Discipulus]: i'v installed ubuntu 16.04lts and i'm quite disappointed: is deadly simmilar to new win osses where you cannot find even simple things...
[Corion]: Hi Discipulus ;)
[Corion]: Mj1234: Maybe Ubuntu didn't package Devel::GDB? In that case, consider using local::lib and install the module from CPAN
[Corion]: But a quick Google search turns up this page, which seems to suggest that it should be packaged
[Discipulus]: iirc active perl has repositories only for last 2 o 3 major release of perl Mj1234. I strongly suggest portable version of strawberry perl and use cpan client to install modules
[choroba]: Also, who needs GDB when there's hdb?
