in thread Is it possible to use modules without installing them?

You can tell if a module is pure Perl or not by examining the dslip information.

One module which does this is CPANPLUS (it also does a whole lot more, including module installation without root access, which I recommend over including the module source in your program*). The default shell includes the 'l' command which will give information, including the language used.

CPAN.pm might also give dslip info, but I don't know it well enough to say if it does or not.

GD is C and Perl and a C compiler is needed. If your ISP allows you to use a compiler, you should still be able to install it without being root.

[1] For instructions on how to do this with CPANPLUS, refer to the FAQ (available on the website).
