in thread Professional development with Perl - how it's done?

now our app runs on Perl 5.8.7 under solaris only. I have read from "perl install" that XS modules under 5.8.* are generally compatible.

but i do agree with what you said. I think i will go the route of keeping modules local to the app and also keeping a copy of unpacked modules to avoid rebuild for each app. of course a copy of module src.

in case of change, Krang::Platform seems to be easy to be adopted in our environment.

thank you.

    If you want a sort of "best of both worlds" approach, you could build a system that can compile your modules, and then just share them around by either making tar.gz packages or using NFS. Then you can quickly recompile for a new platform, but don't need to do it on every machine.

    The way Krang handles this is by building binary distributions, which are just tar.gz packages with everything compiled.
