in reply to Pointers for building Perl off of Strawberry Perl.

I personally have not tried to build Strawberry Perl from source and therefore can't offer any guidance to help you, but one source to look for help would be the information on their support page.

Depending on your needs and limitations, you might be able to use Strawberry Perl's portable version (see their releases page) which does not need to be "installed" or maybe develop the scripts on another system and use something like pp (from PAR::Packer) to package the Perl script into a stand-alone executable. Just thought I'd toss out a few ideas on alternatives.

    Completely agree with both: using one of the stand-alone versions is an excellent idea, but if you're deploying stuff, Par::Packer works really well. I use it on a regular basis.

    32 bit ActiveState behaves on my 64 bit Win8 machine with no problems in any step of my dev/deploy activities. I'd expect Strawberry to behave much the same.

[Corion]: choroba: spod5 converts pod to S5 HTML, so it's also still basic. I find the lack of animations (in the sense of "highlight this", "highlight that" in code) somewhat tedious as I do it with rendered PNGs
[Corion]: I haven't found a good way to include/use the source SVGs I use for creating the PNGs directly as animations
[ambrus]: Presentations come in many different shapes, and so slides do as well.
[Corion]: Doing that in Powerpoint or Ooxml would be nice(r) but I'm much quicker doing the outline of a presentation and the code as Pod
[Corion]: Hurrr - on a machine that is behaving weirdly, I have two processes CROND running. I guess that is the source of unattended jobs sometimes not finding their files anymore...
[ambrus]: Most of the time if I make slides, they're just a formatted document with a medium level of formality (between a well written article and an informal draft), with usually the page breaks chosen carefully and possibly some content repeated between pages.
[Corion]: ambrus: My slides are mostly a list of things I want to talk about. But sometimes I want to point out interesting parts, or build up a larger image from small components. This is where animations/ highlights would come in well
[choroba]: what I like about slides in HTML + CSS is I can use templates to produce them, which means all code in slides is tested, and I can version them in git
[ambrus]: Btw, a request to everyone who organizes international conferences where presenters will show slides.
[ambrus]: In the document where you tell people how long the presentations are supposed to be, please also tell the aspect ratio of your projectors, because that's not obvious in advance.
