in reply to Installation Script

Aren't you just talking about using CPAN, jonjacobmoon?

"The CPAN module is designed to automate the make and install of perl modules and extensions. It includes some searching capabilities and knows how to use Net::FTP or LWP (or lynx or an external ftp client) to fetch the raw data from the net."

"All methods provided are accessible in a programmer style and in an interactive shell style."

    Thank you for the lesson on CPAN but I am aware of its capabilities. Perhaps I did not make that clear, but I am not going to assume CPAN is installed. What if it is not. Let's assume NO modules are installed, or at the very least that I do not know what modules are installed.

    update: Man, my communication skills today must be way off :)

    I did not mean to sound offended. I just wanted something that was, what I think, is beyond or despite the CPAN module.

    I admit it, I am Paco.
