"I don't think I understand your problem.... or at least, I don't understand why you're "(c)ross-packaging (some) code using PerlApp (9.1.1)." (Why? What's wrong with moving it across your LAN; sneaker-net-ing; or using FTP?"

Creating a package can have advantages over moving much code ensuring that the target systems have all prerequisite modules installed. Such things can confuse end users who just expect to run an app. See PAR, pp and these slides for further enlightenment.

"PerlApp does NOT compile your script; it packages it together with it's known dependent modules and what AS calls a "modified" Perl interpreter, but the script still has to be compiled and executed on the target machine.)"

OP made no claim to be compiling scripts, they explicitly state they create packaging an app. I'm not sure why you're telling them this.

"My understanding is (in effect) that you're using the "packaging" with the AS utility called PerlApp to move scripts from the Win box to the Mint box... and don't like the way the script looks when you reopen the script in an editor or cat it to a term (or are you unhappy with the font used for whatever OUTPUT the script generates?)."

Unlikley. It's far more likely to be a problem relating to a GUI toolkit, my guess.
