in reply to Convincing ISP to install a module

Unless it's an XS file, I'd just copy it and set 'use lib' to point to it. Or copy the module into your CGI script, heh.

    Even if it is an XS based module you can do this, providing:

    a) you have access to a compiler
    i) on that machine
    ii) elsewhere to (cross-)compile for that platform
    b) the ISP is not using multiple heterogenous servers with a networked filesystem (the binary module being useless on other platforms).
