in reply to PerlApp For Web GUI Program

"We have a perl based web app"

then you need some sort of web server, i dont think there is a way around this, you could include your own light-weight sever in your exe, such as HTTP::Daemon. But you wont get the performance to match up with apache.

An afterthought, an example of this is the server that powers squeezebox, a perl based app that is easyly installed on windows by non-techy users, the source is open & can be downloaded from slimserver
update: added cpan link.
update2: added squeezebox example.

    I took a look at the example you provided, this is exactly the same sort of thing I would like to achieve with our software. I fear this maybe slightly out of the knowledge pond for myself and my co-workers though to produce this in a reasonably short space of time.

    I hope this is not against any community rules, but if there is anyone out there who has experience in doing something like the above and would like a bit of contracted work please contact me, I'm prepared to pay for some assistance achieving this. My email and MSN id is

    Many Thanks, any further suggestions would be appreciated.
      Its also probably a bit beyond myself to implement quickly, but im sure there are loads of perlmonks who could get it going in a flash, there are a list of perlmonks available for contract work on dragonchild 's homepage, perhaps you should message/email them with your specs.
