in thread Perl 5.8 on Debian

The point I was trying to make is that all of these alternatives have some problems -- security problems, creating a setup that is difficult to maintain, etc. I think I made that one clear. By using the attribute "scary", I am not implying that I am fearful. In fact, I was ready to go route #2 unless there is an easier way, and already linked some instructions in my post.

As the other posts prove, using more benevolent assumptions about my state of mind it is perfectly possible to understand my intent and reply to my post in a helpful manner (and even provide some solutions to help me out).

While from a very technical standpoint, you are right, your answer was not very helpful. Because this is a technical site, I can expect the reader to not interpret "scary" in a literal way.

Given this background information, what is the point of your post? What do you want me to change? (And no, this is not a rhetorical question.)
