Great!
Really interesting, I think I'll use it.

Could you please explain in two words:

  • how required module is unpacked from executable?
  • Is it "saved" in compressed format?
  • Am I right when I am thinking thatno extra temporary files or directories are required for execution?

Also I want to share my own experience on creating independent distributions.

I use similar approach manually for perl-5.6.0 on Win32 for a quite long time.
I succeeded "packing" perl-5.6.1+Tk+Compress::Zlib+(some-other-modules) into some 20 files, most of which are dll-s on my Win32 machine and all text modules being packed into "modules.pm" file (~130Kb in size) which at bootstrap time is unpacked into normal perl modules set.
Having in total 20 files with total size of ~2Mb I have perl with Tk and those selected modules, which I often use.
Very convenient to make independent distributions...
