in reply to Wisdom about "packaging" or transporting Perl apps

Stick with cpan modules. Delegate the responsibility of deps to whomever has root access on servers. That's how I roll. Similar situation.

I have a few very complicated doc maintenance type systems- all perl/bash- mostly perl- also CGI::Application head to toe for the gui.

Screw the install like wordpress- using cpan is easier. Btw, I love wordpress, I even install it for clients and friends. I just wget the source, tarxvf, and replace public_html with .. anyhow.. Comparing these things, it's like apples and organges. I say stick with perl/cpan the way it is, don't try to do clever tricks like prepackaging deps, etc. You'll shoot your eye out.

    Much of the hosting marketplace precludes the customer from having root access or any pull with those who do. It's true that's the low end of the hosting industry, but what do you think most small businesses that are not part of the industry use? They don't understand the differences, and $5 a month sounds much better than $50 a month to them.

    BTW, I assure you I have both my eyes.

    Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
