Shipping a Perl/Tk Appby tomazos (Deacon)
|on Jul 12, 2005 at 20:50 UTC||Need Help??|
tomazos has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
(Primer: This node contains sarcasm. The purpose here is of course to ask what is involved in shipping a Perl/Tk app in general, not this specific Hello World example.)
I've written this amazing Perl/Tk application. Here goes:
Wow. Are you impressed? I bet you are.
Now I am ready to ship it. I want to deploy it such that someone can click on a URL and have the application downloaded and installed on Unix, Mac and Windows with a minimum of fuss. My end users may not have Perl and/or Tk installed on their machine.
What are the options? Is it possible to compile the perl interpretter, whatever modules I use and Tk into one bundle and installer?
Also, what are the licensing implications? Can I then charge people for my amazing "Hello Wolrd" application?
