Buzz has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Perl Monks, i seek your wisdom. I have been baffled for the past few days with what i feel is an intriguing problem. You see i would like to put a binary gif file inside a perl script.
One idea included writing a string, the binary data, to a Temp file and accessing it from there. but it was not sufficient for my requirements.
I also wish for the script to be self contained, that is, no dependencies or libraries kind of a guaranteed portability.
I would be happy to hear any ideas that you are willing to offer
