in reply to Perl on a ZIP disk?

You can just throw on the perl executable for whatever system you are using. It will easily fit on a zip disk, and the unix system version will *easily* fit on a zip disk. Just copy it over and add it to your path. If you are using some other system (e.g. Win9x) it is a little more complicated, but it that case I'd just throw the whole Perl installer on the zip disk and install it to the machine you are using. Or just ask the sysadmin to install it - the whole \PERL subdirectory is only about 12 Meg, as I recall.

    Well, i _do_ use win NT. The whole issue is i can't install it on the computer, first because I'm not allowed, and second because I'm going to run the demonstration on a computer which i will not get my hands on until the actual demonstration... And now i realize I will need a webserver too. :(

    This is getting complicated...
    What i really want to do is to plug the zip in and play ;o)
    Has anybody done this?


      You have no prior access to this machine - yikes sounds like one scary demo! Here's a possibility: You could make a binary executable of the app you want to demo and run it that way. See Perl2exe at DynamicStateOf course, if its perl you are demoing that this ain't much help.
        well, it aint perl I'm demoying, I coud have used anything else, if I wanted too. But I think Perl is the best thing (Sic!) to solve the problem..
