in reply to Linux-version of Strawberry Perl's portable install (was: Portable Perl?)

You might want to take a look at PAR. It allows you to package your app and modules into a standalone executable.

Update: it appears the bits of PAR that make executables have been moved into PAR::Packer, a separate CPAN dist.

    I've been using PAR, but it doesn't do exactly what I need. It uses local system libraries in some circumstances when I don't want it to. I've been corresponding the maintainer of PAR on the PAR list about it. I do use the PAR::Repository::Client and really like it. It doesn't do the job when it comes to distributing perl without using local libraries, though.


    I'm a Linux user. You wouldn't know it since I mostly ask Windows questions. Whee.
