Its funny but after all these years of doing Perl, I have never
had to worry about generic installation because I have always
has root access to the machines I worked on. However, I am
about to deliver a utility I created for a client, and need
to write an installation script that checks for specific
modules, downloads them and installs them, and
creates and installs parts of the utility in user selected directories.
Now, of course what I am curious about is if there a script
someplace which will be easily altered to do this or if there
is a module that can get me halfway there.
I admit it, I am Paco.
