in reply to Deploying Multi-Platform Perl Solutions

I've had decent luck with ActiveState's perlapp. I've used it to distribute both Windows and Linux platforms. Both have to be built on the target platform. Hope that helps.

yet another biologist hacking perl....

    I am also an Active State user. This is just theory as I haven't tried it yet, but supposedly it is possible to build executable files for Linux, Mac OS X and Windows all on my Win platform with the latest Active State Dev kit. I have no idea of how this cross platform stuff is supposed to work and I haven't tried it yet, so buyer beware.

[usemodperl]: so... how do we get modules via HTTP from metacpan?
[marto]: configure whatever client you use to use a repositry you like?
[Corion]: usemodperl: Why would you want HTTP there? If you want/need to use wget without SSL libraries, set (or whatever) as your uplink?
[marto]: I suspect more trolling...
[usemodperl]: Because the audience for my apps have old, locked down versions of perl that can't install modules or update perl and now all that is horribly broken without HTTP. Of course I can go outside Perl anytime but that impacts portability
[usemodperl]: I can find cpan mirrors on http but not with plain files, only tar.gz, does something like meta exist on http?

    Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
