Out of curiosity, where does one find a portable version of ActivePerl?

I don't remember seeing one before, but I guess I could have missed it. Looking at the (community edition) ActivePerl download page, I'm only seeing installer downloads and not a portable version. Also, a quick Google search turned up this link from ActiveState's user forums from about 4 months ago.

On the other hand, it's clear from their releases page that Strawberry Perl offers a portable version of their distribution of Perl.

I personally am not really needing/wanting a portable version of ActivePerl. Just have never heard of a portable version of ActiveState and was curious where that is available at.

      Nice summation.


      With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
      Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
      "Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
      In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

      Cool! Thanks for the info.

      It's been a while since I have dug around ActiveState's website, but I don't remember seeing the .zip file downloads for their releases of ActivePerl.

      Also, I remember seeing individuals in the past ask about a portable version of Perl for Linux, but for some reason, I don't remember anyone providing as much info on how to make any version/distribution of Perl portable like what you provided.
