in thread Automated build and deployment.

It's a bit limiting because you can only ship pure Perl modules that way - or hope that you have a nice server admin who is willing to do it for you.
It's actually not that hard to install compiled modules with only Web access; have an installer script, run from a Web browser, that runs the compiler and installs the modules in the user's home directory. See Re: Re: Alternatives to User::Agent? for an example; obviously you'd have to adapt this for your purposes. I've found that this works for most Web hosting companies I've used, and I do it frequently.

      Wow, that's great! I've been looking for something like that for years. I'll have to play with it this weekend.
        it's still very limited. if your compiler and make are not in the usual paths you have to adjust that in the script.

        and the documentation is pretty... uhm... compact.

        i would like to use CPAN.pm with it; the reason I didn't was that my webhoster, for example, hasn't got CPAN.pm. but it could be easily bundled with cgipan.
        i'm open for any ideas =)
