in reply to Installation Script

I used Net::FTP and LWP::UserAgent for my system.

First I upload test script that evals seperately the 'use' statements the script(s) use.

i then call the script with LWP::UserAgent (it outputs list of uninstalled modules as text page).

Then, either do a local install of the modules by FTP, or ask them to give you root access :-)

If you want to see an example, msg me your e-mail and I'll send over a copy of the script I used.

Of course, if http testing isn't on, you may have to think up another route :)

    Thanks, but I wanted to find something that assumes no modules. I think I am just going to assume CPAN and give up on the idea of a no-module option.

    I admit it, I am Paco.
      Yes, but you can install most Perl modules in a user directory, so if you do rely on them, you can install them and add:
      use lib '/path/to/modules';
      before requiring the locally installed modules.
